This little guy is a Saffron Finch. We have these birdies all over Hawaii and they are really this bright in color. I love looking out the window and watching pairs of Saffron Finches hopping around under my tangerine tree and chirping it up in the trees. When our sprinklers go on in the morning, it's pool party time for these little guys. They'll dive bomb through the streams of water, shake it off and go again. I call this 5"x7" painting "No Worries" because he's got that laid-back look and just happens to be all Rasta colors. I had Bob Marley stuck in my head while painting him...
Had a great day yesterday, my good friend Kris at Genesis Gallery Hawaii sold three miniature paintings to Brigette, so I have to get back to work!
