a happy ending


Thanks for all who weighed in on the broad billed hummingbird-- still haven't decided on other additions- branches, flowers-- but the yellow was a winner! You guys are great artists. There is something so vibrant about it I am afraid of cluttering it. (I promise no more art or bird blogging for a while lest i lose my devout readers)

I really like the yellow! I think if you add much the beauty of the bird may get lost... but with that yellow, a gorgeous sunset and flowers would ROCK!
(I am NOT an artist and envy those of you who are... so take that FWIW)

It looks nice! Is it water color (sorry if that is a dumb question and painfully obvious from the picture!)?

In the last couple of years I have tried watercolors (one word or two??) and oil painting. I am not good, but it sure is a cool hobby.

no don't feel stupid- i paint in acrylics (safest and most flexible medium i think--)-- i don't like oils cause they are so slow drying and the toxic solvent factor-(I hate worrying about ventilation or painting around my kids or pregnant-etc) I like watercolors but you have to worry about it getting muddy- i like to layer alot- so its not the best medium for me--try acrylics they rock--if you check out the link- MY ART you can see more of my stuff-- yep so fun!
