Painted Bunting

Painted Bunting • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

How could I not paint a painted bunting after seeing them for the first time?! They really look like flying painter’s palettes–they’re soooo gorgeous! We’ve got a little feeder up on the window and have really enjoyed watching a pair of cardinals come and go all spring, but then a couple of weeks ago, the painted buntings arrived! Every time I see them I get so excited and giddy. They are so sweet and fun to watch. They generally feed at the feeder 3 or 4 times a day and sometimes they perch on the edge of the deck too. Happiness! Here’s my tiktok video of the painted bunting painting process. 🙂
