For the birds

Okay, I am officially overwhelmed, taxed out, and behind on everything. I wish I had desserts to sustain me, but, instead, I have the spelled-backwards version. πŸ˜›

So, for the 8th of the month bird day theme – thank you Laura (Create Art Everyday) for telling me about it! – I am just going to share an oldie. This is one I did over ten years ago of American Goldfinches. If I recall correctly, it’s done in watercolor and colored pencils.

  1. oh wow! that is an awesome painting, Teresa!! it may also be the only way I see American Goldfinches up close!! πŸ™‚ our sunflowers have drooped over like the ones here … it would be sooo nice if the Goldies returned to pillage them!

  2. Yes! This multi-headed sunflower was in our yard at our old house. I watched them for a while and took a photo to work from. Goldfinches gather in fairly large groups often…more often than I have multi-headed sunflowers, I think. πŸ˜€

  4. This is just outstanding!! So amazingly gorgeous!! I just LOVE this watercolor and color pencil of the three goldfinches on sunflowers.

    I Seldom see goldfinches and you are right when I do see them, they are in a flock. The last time I saw them was in spring on our feeder of sunflower seeds. It was magnificent!!

    If you like birds there is a great memoir out called “H is for Hawk” about a woman who trains a Goshawk to help herself while she is grieving for her father’s death. Tremondous, really. Another form of art. πŸ™‚
