"Baby Hummingbird No. 1" - 4 x 4 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
Today's little painting features an almost ready to fly baby Hummingbird. I wanted to paint a Hummingbird today and looked on Google for inspiration. A 3rd grade teacher found a baby Hummingbird while doing garden work.
She must be a very special teacher because after asking her husband to make a little cardboard home complete with a twig for perching, she brought him to school. For two weeks, the class cared for and posted some videos and photos. More to the story tomorrow along with another painting of this same little bird.
