painting of hummingbird at rest

© 2020-2021 V. Leigh Artworks

“Fragile”, oil pastel on canvas, “24×29”, 2020

The effervescent hummingbird is a reminder of the fleeting, fragile state of life.
He makes the most of his short time and is rarely at rest. This little gem was defeated in a territorial battle and rests his weary wings on a luminous bed of moss, waiting to regain the energy to fly again. See how he was painted here: Fragile / Tools of the Trade
