Goldfinch Coming In

Oil on Canvas 6X8 SOLD
The newly hung bird feeders have brought a cornucopia of birds. Most prevalent are the goldfinches. I think this one looks like a lemon with wings. As I was finishing this a beautiful Rose Breasted Grosbeak hit the patio door. She hung in for a while but then died. I am so sad. She's probably a mother! I have tape on the glass now, too late for her. My friend Jane, were she still alive, would paint the bird, so I shall do the same.
sorry to post a sad story. Thanks for looking.

Like this, as it is so difficult to do a bird painting with life and movement!....good going Dale, will look for bird sans life.

Hi Dona,
I'm pleased that you like this one. Worked on the sans life yesterday, with some difficulty. We'll see where it goes.
