Young Sparrow


5 x 7 inches
oil on canvas

A very small painting I did this afternoon.  We've got quite a few fledgling sparrows in the yard lately. It's fun watching them every morning, especially when they're begging food off their parents or trying to land properly.  Sometimes they overshoot and tumble to the ground! Eventually they do get the hang of it, and are flying as graceful as the rest of the flock.

I love watching my backyard birds too, and this piece captures the fledgling so beautifully!
