Summer is long gone and so are the little hummingbirds, but not before I was able to spend many hours on the deck watching, sketching, photographing. They love the dead tree next to the deck and that's where their feeders are hung. They were busy all summer, drinking, fighting with their friends and raising babies. They don't nest in the dead tree, not enough foliage, but I think they nest in the huge evergreen out in front. When they are resting, they are just like any other bird, preening, flitting from branch to branch, and sometimes napping. Way too cute!
10"x10" Oil. The coffee pot was purchased in Indiana while my daughter was visiting for the summer. This was a fun painting especially of the lobster graphic. It's a nice reminder of a really lovely day!
Quite a few new chickadee's this year, busy now chasing each other around the yard. The glass pumpkin is from the Renaissance Festival in Waynesville, Ohio. A fun painting to do, but it took some time.
Look for three of my paintings at the Mason Arts Show at Cottel Park in Mason on Sunday, September 17, and I also have a booth at Art Affaire, in Milford September 23, 2017. See you there!

This painting is sold Everyday they look in the window, begging for peanuts. I always give in and put a few on the deck railing. They are fearless, sometimes picking up a peanut and then putting it down only to choose another. Picky! They are now teaching their babies to grab and run. There were six Jay's in the tree this morning making a racket.
