Hummingbird and Hibiscus Blooms, A Decorative Painting

With Springtime in full bloom and warmer days finally here, I was inspired to share a painting I did from an art book study years ago. The book is, Birds in My Garden by Barbara Baatz Hillman.
This wood box piece is shaped like a fan and slides open to hold small keepsakes or wrapped candy. The perfect little accent for a coffee table.

As I view the hummingbirds in my own garden I love to watch these amazing and gorgeous little birds work so hard and suspend in one spot in the air drinking from a feeder or enjoying a flower in full bloom.
The skill, strength and stamina for such a feat is just beautiful to watch. My dear guy loves to observe the birds in our garden too and has hummingbird feeders for these elegant birds to enjoy throughout our garden.

The beautiful Hibiscus flowers are a favorite of mine to paint and grow, but our Miss Beazy loves to eat them, so I have to plant in an area she can not reach.

The Decorative Arts has been a huge part of my life for so many years and as a
Decorative Design Artist and member of the National Society of Decorative Painters, it has enriched my world, not only as a designer, but challenging me with a skill level to push my creativity.

Thank you for joining me today for a view of decorative painting from my own personal collection. I will share more from my collection in the future and till then, I will be over in my etsy shoppe filling the shelves with a few more treasures designed last week.

See you soon and have a blessed and wonderful week.

Smiles from Texas, Celestina Marie
