Oil painting of Anna’s female hummingbird in a desert landscape. Emphasis is the hummingbird, deliberately proportionally larger. The hummingbird subject was from my photo of the female Anna’s who made her nest in my yard and had two sucessful hummingbirds fledge. The desert landscape is also from my photo reference taken while visiting the Anza Borrego Desert.

On the left is an oil paintng on wood panel. The subject is one of my favorite creatures in nature, hummingbirds. Their acrobatic ballet flying abilities are incredible. Only the female hummingbird builds the nest and cares for her 1-2 nestlings. She’ll continue feeding them 1-2 weeks after they have fledged from their nest.
My many years in rescuing hummingbirds has given me a wonderful and unique opportunity to observe them up close.
The Public Choice Show exhibited this piece at the San Clemente Art Gallery from January 10th, 2010 through February 11th, 2010.
