I just finished these small mini paintings of hummingbirds actually they are all Ruby-Throated hummingbirds. What fun it was to paint these little creatures!!! Yes, they are only 3.5 inches long, only weigh 1/8 oz and move very quickly in fact many of us haven't seen them in detail. Both male and female sport brillant color especially the well loved, Ruby-Throated which are common in my area the North East U.S.A. Did I mention they share my daughter's name??
If you are in the area, I will be debuting my mini hummingbird paintings at my solo exhibition, "Impressions of the Garden" at the Reeves Reed Arboretum, Summit, NJ. The exhibition will run March 7th- May 8th. I will be giving a presentation, "Women Impressionists" on Thursday, March 10th at 7pm. For more information, click on Reeves Reed Arboretum.
