This painting evolved after a visit to Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Globe, AZ, where a hybrid hummingbird was discovered. He was a cross between a broad-billed (upper left) and a violet- crowned (lower center) hummingbird. He is seen here in the upper right feeding at a prickly pear cactus bloom.
It was such a thrill to be able to actually spot this little creature after reading about him in various publications. I had so much fun creating this watercolor painting of him and his parents!
This painting would be a perfect companion to "The Costa Hummingbird Family" and my new one, "Three For Breakfast".
Thank you for stopping by my gallery!
I am currently residing in Arizona and have previously exhibited in galleries in Arizona and Wisconsin. Having lived in both states, it has given me very diverse subject matter as is evident in the variety of art pieces I have posted here. I also have appeared in several art shows in both states and received various awards, including the Wisconsin Regional Art Show Travelling Exhibit Award for my watercolor 'Spring In Tlaquepaque'. While working for the Dean Medical Center in Madison, WI, I completed several commission pieces to be displayed in their clinics ('Comin' Home', 'The Catch', 'Little Mill', and Christine's Ride'). I also created their employee birthday card for several years in a row. I hope you will enjoy viewing my artwork. Just click on each gallery to view the art in that category, then click on any image to enlarge it.
