Morning Song - Day 14 of the 30 Day Challenge

Surprise! Yesterday I said I would be wrapping up the Energy triptych today, but I felt more like painting a little bird again, so I bring you Morning Song.  Like the Chickadee I produced for Day 11, the Golden Finch is another bird that frequents our yard year long.  In the spring the yellow of he males nearly vibrates with color.  It clearly screams out "notice me!"  About the same time the finches reach the peak of their color our morning glories begin to bloom. What a glorious time Spring is. I wish it were here.

Morning Song
Fluid Acrylic on Aquabord
5" X 5" with 2" deep cradle

  1. I really like the composition and colors in this one, April. You really have a good handle on using the fluid acrylics to your advantage. Well done!

    1. I love fluid acrylic. I've don't watercolor for a long time, so they work similarly. They seem to work really well on Aquabord. I think I get a better result than I did with watercolor on Aquabord.

  2. Love this April. Your yard sounds delightful! I love morning glories and your colorful visitors are fun to watch I bet :)

    1. When we first moved here I spent a lot to time looking out the windows. Smiling at the memory.

  3. Ah, that is lovely. I am missing spring too (snow, hail, wind, sleet etc is getting me down)!

    1. We've had a lot of cold, cold and more cold. I needed to pretend it was Spring.

    1. Originally planned for a long narrow painting , so I had to do some severe cropping of my design and rearranging. Glad the new composition worked out.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
