Birds of a Feather: Bushtits

My friend, Louise Osborne, and I decided to do a series of paintings based on the birds in our backyards. Bushtits are aplenty in the grassy oak meadow where we live, and also in the nearby Chinese cemetery, a National Historic Site.

It pays to keep alert. Memory, an event, a piece of music, an object, a bird, a leaf or a tree can all serve as departure points and painting fodder. They prompt me to see differently, to keep persevering in order to tease out the essence of the thing and to understand why I care enough about it to commit paint to canvas.
