Good evening everyone! I just wanted to share with you this little painting I started and completed over the weekend. I photographed this little American Redstart (one of my favorite warblers!) two weekends ago and just had to paint him. I had lots of fun with this one; it was refreshing to use bright colors for a change. ;)

8" X 8"

Very nice - love the muted b/g, the negative painting and the sharp clarity of the bird.:)

Wow, thank you so much, everyone! I'm really glad you all like it. I have one more small canvas this size and I think that one will be an Indigo Bunting. :)

Beautiful beautiful. I love the halo effect of the light around the little guy's head.

This is a great little painting! So much to look at and such pleasing colors.

I had a look at your website and my jaw is officially dropped. What a body of fantastic works. What struck me is so many of your pieces look like large works on first glance, because of the amount of detail present...then to find out many are smaller than an 11X14. Very impressive talent.

That is just lovely and I love the unusual perspective!

It looks like a very confident painting. It does not look like you have over worked it in any way and have achieved a good level of realism with an economy of painting. Of course I have no way to tell for sure if that is true, but it just gives that impression.

Thank you so much, Sharla! That really means a lot to me. Very glad you like my other work as well. :D

Thanks a lot, Christina! :)

Thanks very much, Daq! That's a huge compliment to me. I didn't want to fuss around with this one much. I wanted to simply enjoy it. :)
