""Yellow House Finch on Cosmos"
Watercolor 10"x 10" sold
For many years I had wonderful pink Cosmos growing at the edge of the garden, As the flowers faded and the seeds appeared, they were always a favorite place for these wonderful, small bright yellow birds to come for dinner. Soon the cats in the neighborhood began to think of it as their very own fast food restaurant....They would sit on the ground beneath the flowers, nicely camouflaged by the foliage, wait until a bird came to eat seeds, then conveniently reach up and grab a colorful meal.
Above is the entire composition. The detail below shows more accurate color.
