Since I love birds as much as flowers,I was delighted to find seven Downy woodpecker fledglings playing in McLeod's apple tree in their garden.
I thoroughly enjoyed photographing and watching them play and take turns at the feeder. I also was inspired by the turquoise metal chandelier that cast a shadow through the mess feeder. Since I still have this 5X7 painting as well I plan to deepen the colors in it.
This is one of the paintings I did in Mrs McLeods garden in Hampton during Bloomin Artist. On site we artists try to complete works to sell in a silent auction and we often feel rushed so that our work is not as detailed as it may have been in the studio. I feel I may work on this further as it did not sell and I can see it still needs some highlights.
