Hummmmm

Another hummingbird in the works. I have put this away so many times and gotten it back out, added a few strokes, and put it down again. Washed out some areas I didn't like, then re-painted. When you use this much color it takes more work to balance it out, and always the threat of overworking looms on your mind.  Who would think such a carefree picture would create such agony?  Maybe the next one will paint itself; we can always hope!

This is a beautiful painting of a hummingbird. It matches my poem about the hummingbird.
