Bird over Paradise

Last month I did a sketch of this hummingbird as a preliminary study for a larger painting which is now the poster for the Indian Wells Arts Festival. (See Sept 24th post) I've been looking at the sketch and kept thinking that the bird on the plain blue sky needed some clouds and mountains to make the painting feel complete. So, I had to add them. Now, the sketch is a bird flying over the mountains in Palm Springs....a bird with a background and a sense of place. This 9" x 11"unframed watercolor on Arches 300# paper is available for $275 on my website
