  1. I love the vibrancy of this! The colors hum just like the bird would! Well done! I also love the purple flowers below and their sweet nostalgic feel.

  2. Yes, this little guy is energized. I see a whole garden behind this hummer too, Katherine. All the stuff that "painted itself", looks so purposely put and like foliage to me. (I see roses too - giving it that nostalgic feel.) This was drawn on the yupo paper with ink and then "filled in" with watercolor in less than 20 minutes. I can't always do that, unless I just 'nudge or suggest' and allow the piece to kinda paint itself. It's a rush!

  3. What a joyful painting!!! I am almost positive I saw one outside the big window two days ago. :) And I have my feeder ready ...

    1. Glad you are all ready for your hummingbirds and thanks for the shout, Kathryn!

  4. Oh! Oh! Oh! How glorious to know they are on the move! Yaaay! :)
    Good news is I just received word this morning that I will be getting an apartment with a balcony so I can hang my feeders up and enjoy our little celestial friends as well as plant some flowers and a few vege's. I'm ecstatic Sandy! :)

    This painting is full of joy and vibrancy...even with the muted background it makes the hummingbird really pop out, as if I am seeing it through a camera lense with the background a bit fuzzy...not sure I'm making any sense here? Anyway...I love the composition and colors you chose Sandy.

    1. Akasa, I am happy to hear you will have a balcony and will be able to make it your own little sanctuary! I know it will be lovely. Thanks for your nice comments about my painting and yes, as always, you made perfect sense! :-D

  5. Sandy Sandy, hummingbirds and horses my two totems in life.
    One to my right to the right and the other to my left. I look forward to strolling through your blog. Just found you by way of Aksana. Have been under the weather so if you visit my fluff and fodder post lol do know there is more depth than meets the post today ;)
    So nice to have found you ...beautiful horse with you in your profile photo, I hope to find him as I stroll through your blog and learn more.
    Be Well
