The Gift Hummingbird: Another 6-inch Square

This summer I have been blessed with a very friendly hummingbird. While we usually have hummingbirds pass through during their migration, I have not had one stay around for this long. It has flown into my garage and buzzed around me on two occasions.  It has often stayed close by when I have been working in my yard. Honoring this incredible gift was a lot of fun.

The hummingbird was created out of paper. The background is again duck cloth painted with fluid acrylics. I am enjoying this new direction and want to play more with painting duck cloth. Are you trying anything new?


  1. I have started doing some painting with thickened dyes. I like the dyes as it doesn't change the hand of the fabric and I still like that aspect. It's all fun.

    1. I haven't tried thickened dyes yet but it sure sounds like fun. More fun is definitely needed in life!


Love comments! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
