Hummer Girl, 6" X 6" oil on panel

My first Daily Painting!
Nothing beats a hummingbird if you love color and birds and flowers. This little guy (I mean girl) visited the feeder and garden frequently. With their microsecond wingbeats, I wasn't sure initially how to approach the painting to create the feeling of that motion, but I was happy with this solution. I plan to do more like this, featuring her, or perhaps some of the Rufous hummers I had at my feeders when I lived in Wyoming!
