This is a painting of an American Goldfinch. It is a 5" x 5" India ink and colored pencil painting.
American Goldfinch are charming little birds that stay here in the Berkshire mountains of Mass. all year, but in winter their plumage fades to a warm gray. Then as Spring finally arrives in snow country, these birds become brilliant yellow. What a joy Goldfinch are, lighting up my backyard feeder like lemon drops with wings!
