Oil on Board 2.5 x 3.5 inches
The size of this piece is a part of Daily Paint Works weekly challenge. I decided today would be the day I'd paint a Hummingbird and the Rufous are the largest North American species. Mine has my interpretation of what this bird really looks like.
I don't know about you, but I have more than once froze in utter fear when one of these little guys have flown by...because they sound like giant bees. They fly so fast, you have to do a double take and then realize your safe and have been blessed by sighting the bird.
