Spotting the first hummingbird of the year is a happy occasion, and we always look forward to welcoming these enchanting summer visitors into our yard.
Outside our studio office window grows a wild, reddish-orange trumpet vine that attracts numerous little flying acrobats. The trumpet vine flowers are large enough for the tiny hummers to slip inside.
Of course, I much prefer watching the hummingbird antics at the trumpet vine flowers to doing necessary computer work! Instead of doing office work on a lazy summer day, painting and watching hummingbirds is the inspiration for “Summer Visitor.”
One of my primary goals as an artist is to bring a sense of life to each painting. Capturing the fleeting, vibrant colors in nature is a constant challenge that I enjoy.
