Feeding Rufous 7" x 5"
A rufous hummingbird feeds on freshly opened spring flowers. This is the same hummingbird that I observed at McDowell Creek near my home a few weeks ago. He had quite a dominant grasp on his territory as he went from flower to flower and perch to perch. While working out the composition for this piece. images of simplified Far Eastern bird paintings kept coming to mind. My Facebook Page My Website (new - but still under construction!)
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
