Mejiro with Jade Vine
Acrylic on Canvas
5″ X 7″
As I have been painting birds, I find myself returning to certain birds that are extra enjoyable. The mejiro, also known as Japanese white eye, is one of my favorite birds to paint. Here, I have jade vine, the only flower I know that is naturally a gorgeous turquoise combined with the green of the mejiro, the blue gray of the distant mountains, and a warm summer blue sky to create a palette of fresh, breezy blues and greens.
This is the fourth entry in my 30 in 30 painting challenge. You can see the entire series here:
