Depending on the device you are using, this painting may look much larger than it actually is. Towards the end of the summer, I painted another series of “minis” just 4″ x 4″. It is so much fun to paint these – talk about instant gratification! I tried to keep them quick and playful. The subjects are such that they can be depicted around life-sized.
There’s something so adorable about nuthatches …maybe it’s the way they walk head-first down the tree trunks. Anyway, I decided to capture that classic pose here.
