Original acrylic painting of a blue humming bird on canvas.
This is one of a pair of humming bird paintings I did. The colors are invented and complementary to each other.
I fell in love with humming birds when we lived in California where I saw them up close for the first time. They would cluster around a flowering vine we had in our backyard. So tiny and colorful, their rapildy moving wings made a soft buzzing much like a bumble bee. I loved how they hovered in mid air, thenflitted from one flower to the next. With this painting I experimented with looser strokes and a background of collaged printed paper which has been painted with acrylic paint.
Painting is 8 x 8" and is signed and ready to hang.
