Rainbow Birds: Indigo & Violet

This painting is the last of a series developed from an experiment with pouring paint. I came up with the idea while watching the birds at the feeder outside my window. I noticed one day that the feeder attracted birds of all the colors of the rainbow. I thought, how amazingly beautiful nature is! I completed a series of individual studies of each of the birds, drawn and painted to scale of the actual birds, then worked at a composition featuring them all together. This piece features an Indigo Bunting and a Purple Martin. Next, I will work on assembling the individual paintings into one long piece! These paintings are great for anyone who loves birds and the beauty of nature! The series can make a great set of greeting cards. You can view print and greeting card options here: Rainbow Birds: Indigo & Violet

Thank you to all who donated toward the purchased of a replacement digital camera. Because of your generosity I not only was able to collect the full amount, but I was also able to get a $25 bonus that one of the donors pledged if I was able to collect all $189.98. Your show of support for my art making has really inspired me beyond any expectations I may have had. Thank you very much!
