I have bird feeders placed around my house in areas where I can see them easily from my living room or my studio. The House Finch is a year round visitor. They are beautiful birds and fun to watch.
I wanted this piece to be very simple in composition and design, but the background color needed to compliment the colors of the bird. So far so good. This is an 10X8 painting, so not very big, but who said a painting had to be big to be beautiful?
