The goldfinch is such a beauty! I feel birds are flowers with wings.:). I am straying from my usual florals these days because it's been so busy with kids in school and starting sports and music I feel my head spinning! So a simple bird takes me out of the stress and into a world of simplicity. I hope you have a great time in your studio! Happy Painting
P.S. The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
