I was wearing a bright red shirt today when several hummingbirds started dive-bombing me! Their sweet little feeder was only a few feet away from the deck but I guess I looked like a much bigger flower! Ironically, I had just finished the hummingbird and hibiscus painting this morning and was enjoying lunch on the deck.
Other birds are coming around now too. Yesterday I had visits from a Northern Parula and several Black-Throated Green Warblers along with the more frequent visitors including Goldfinches, Chickadees, Juncos, Purple Finches and others. Its good to be back in Maine watching spring break out. Its a busy time...the garden got tilled and the lawn mower went in for a tune-up today. And I'm getting ready for the spring and summer shows with new paintings.... including the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. Check out the Show schedule for upcoming shows....starting on Memorial Day weekend in Meredith, NH. Hope to see you there!
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
