Still Life with Grackle and Moths

2016/09/img_7799-3.jpg

The Common Grackle is a favorite of mine – strong and elegant – a smart mischief maker.  Nothing common about them their black iridescent coloring reminds me of a black opal. I would love to entertain them in my garden.  I have no Grackles in my garden but many Mockingbirds and Cardinals. They are coming for the ripe figs!

Painted with Gouache and watercolor on smooth Fabriano paper.
