Sometimes Patience is required for success and this painting required quite a bit of patience. But I think I achieved what I'm always striving for: paintings that change in tone and mood as the light changes during the day. It is absolutely stunning at any time of day and even night as the slightest hint of moonlight will set it aglow. Gilded with gold and silver.
Inspired by the hummingbird residing in my garden and the magnificent magnolia trees.
