I recently did an acrylics "class" as a fundraiser for my son's elementary artroom. It was fun, and that piece I'll share when it's home.

That encouraged me to paint again and I really wanted to paint a ruby-throated hummingbird because we have so many this year--like 10-12!

I got out one of my 4x6 canvases, and here he is!



Just a small sampling of my hummingbirds this year! I chose this one because there are a bunch, they are eating, and flying, and you can see when the wings are expanded.

I have got some serious envy going on over here, I would LOVE to have such delicate and beautiful models. It might even tempt me to take up painting because who wouldn't like to have copies of that loveliness hanging around?

How fun! I love the way the color of the flower matches his throat. Very happy picture! Do hummingbirds stick around in the winter...? If not, this will be a charming way to keep them nearby all year!

Nope, they migrate in the winter, but they come back to the same places year after year. We could have that many or more next year!

I'm not nearly as skilled at painting/drawing as I am other things...yet!

I still think it turned out pretty well, and is hanging on the wall with your succulents box!

It's been so fun. You can see them fight, eat, hear them chirp! I added a pic of them to my first post.
