I am on a bit of a roll with the sparrows – I’m painting a couple more after this. I am really enjoying working with the brighter colours. Painting flowers is new to me, so I’m having fun figuring that out.

Adding a few flowers to my bird paintings has been fun. It’s a nice opportunity to try out new colour combinations. I can’t remember the last time I used pink!
I like it when I can mix up the greens with another colour. Especially purple! Helps the birds to pop out, I think.

There seems to be a lot of hummingbirds around lately. I see or hear one every time I am out for a walk. I guess they are enjoying the stretch of sunny weather and perhaps the quiet, empty streets.

The early bird gets the worm. It’s true – I recently read that Robins prefer to eat worms in the morning and fruit later in the day.
