"Quiet Refuge"

Oil on Linen Canvas Panel

Image Size: 16 x 12

This is the same little bird as "On the Watch" that was in my back yard at our second home in Colorado. I took pictures of close-up pine trees to use as a setting for him - he was actually on the fence. I was trying for a circular design here so everything would always come back to him. I loved painting the pinecones! I repeated the orange color on his head all over the painting and added a touch of purple here and there for accents. Birds are so fun to paint, especially when the light on them is perfect like it was here.
