Mr. Redbird


8"x10" Oil on linen canvas board.

Commissioned by my niece, Jacque, in memory of her mother, my sister Anita, who passed away three years ago.  Anita loved redbirds and magnolia blossoms.

Although I have a redbird couple flitting around my backyard from time to time, my photos did not compare to this great reference photo of Mr. Redbird that I found via Google, along with several photos of magnolia blossoms and leaves.

I would adore seeing a bird like that myself. You did a beautiful job.
