Last summer while at a feeder, a hummingbird let me lightly put my finger on it’s tiny chest. It kept feeding and I could feel it’s rapidly beating heart. Lovely! When I first painted these hummingbirds in a more realistic manner, they looked very sweet but I experience them as very electric and ninja-like so I made them more vibrant. This painting just sold and the buyer added another perception, he thinks my hummers look like Huichol art. Love it!
