Oil on canvas, 8" x 10"
One of the things I really like about painting outside is the way birds and other wildlife eventually decide to ignore you and just go about their business. In my backyard where I painted this, the sparrows are the exception. They were VERY unhappy that I was there, and very vocal about it. Of course, the fact that they had a nest with hungry chicks about 10 feet away from my easel just might have been the reason. TOO BAD SPARROWS! It's my yard- although I did take breaks every 20 minutes or so to go in the house and let them tend the young'uns.
