featured painting: Rufous Humminbirds & Rhododendron, 24" X 18", watercolor
in limited edition print)
Rufous hummingbirds are numerous in the spring and summer where I live. Sometimes my hummingbird feeder buzzes with three or four at a time. Since the feeder is right outside a window next to my drawing table, I have constant entertainment while I paint. I also frequently see these hummers visiting several rhododendrons around my cabin, and this gave me the idea for this painting.
