Anna’s hummingbird

Anna’s Hummingbird (4″ x 4″ oil on raised panel)

Another tiny creature for a tiny painting. Hummingbirds are so sweet and we do see them around quite a lot where we live. As we plant more flowering plants in the garden I hope they will spend more time in view instead of speeding off.

Tom wrote this: (I love the hummingbird’s perspective he imagines!)

Precisely feathered, warmed by sun
I sit upon a summer twig
while in the trees the bumblers hum
wishing they were like me: big!

  1. The energy of all the delightful colours are so perfect reflecting the zippy energy of the hummingbird! The poem is so perfect for this little painting of a little bird ❤️
