Re: Goldfinch - MI

It's lovely and soft. They are such gorgeous little birds. I love how they can sit on top of a flower and the flower hardly moves. Well done!

Re: Goldfinch - MI

The little foot is amazing and I truly love that painterly little flower! Goldfinches winter here on the Gulf Coast but usually fly north before their colors change much. Although last spring there were a few who stayed long enough to get a fair bit of yellow, Iíve never seen them in full plumage. Maybe thatís why Iíve always been so fascinated by them. Thank you for posting that lovely little bird.

Thank you very much. I'm glad you like it. That little yellow painterly flower is my favorite part of this painting! Gotta love when you get it just right the first time!

This is really nice and has a kind of pastel feel to it.
So subtle and lovely.
