These colorful bottles inspired me. I am challenged by the different light, highlights and refractions that I must interpret in paint. Hummingbirds are my favorite birds. When I was a young girl, I would help nurse injured birds back to health, and then I returned them to the wild. Sometimes, I needed the help of the ‘bird lady’. She had a ‘pet’ hummingbird. The little fellow was unable to use one of his wings, so during the day she kept him in a bouquet of flowers in her living-room. This event inspired my still life paintings with birds.
