A Fondness

In the name of seeking joy, I painted a small tribute piece to the feathered finch of my daily delight.

5"x7" Watercolor on 100% cotton Arches watercolor paper

It is no secret that I harbor a great fondness for the feathered creatures that inhabit my property. They are the original survivors, the songmakers, the joy bringers, the gifters of grins and scatterers of seeds. 


Sometimes it just feels good to paint with nothing but joy and thanks in your heart.

How do you do that? I could swear your lovely birdies have souls :). And somehow you manage to capture pure happiness with a bit of paint and a 5x7. There really is no explanation except that you're extaordinary :).

P.S. I can't wait to meet these two fellows in person. I have a feeling they're going to shine like a beam of light across the whole of my house!
