Pine Siskins are commonly found in conifer forests, but during the winter and early spring, they love to visit niger thistle feeders. This little fellow had spent a good part of a morning eating thistle seeds. Between the warm sunshine and a full belly, he dozed off for a few minutes. I had to paint this endearing bird!
This painting, and many others, will be for sale during the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour, April 12-14, 10-5 p.m. each day. I will be located at 306 Court Street, The Dalles, Oregon. Stop by and say hello. I plan to demonstrate watercolor with the start of a new painting.
