Carolina Wren

Favorite Bird

Took a break while I was painting this and saw a Carolina wren on a flower pot in the garden.  A male wren woos the female by building several nests for her to choose from.  Was thinking about adding a wren in this painting, the timing was perfect!

Another small painting for a competition deadline this weekend.  They're a joy to paint!  Here's how this one looked when first sketched out on canvas with transparent Payne's gray and Gamsol.
