Number One!!!!! I promised myself I would do a painting a week in 2011. This is the first.
These adorable, resident wrens nest in the flower box on our backyard shed. Each year we await their return and listen to them scoulding us when we get too close to their babies. One year we were blessed to watch as the fledglings popped up and down in between the flowers while getting up the energy and or nerve to take their first flight. They looked like little jack-in-the boxes and made us laugh. This painting is from a photo a took and is painted in gouache, and a bit more detailed than my normal watercolors due to the opacity of the gouache versus watercolor.
