"Spread Your Wings" by Astrid Paustian
This painting is fresh off the easel today. I was excited by the movement in the reference photo, taken last year in our garden. I took photos of the young Gold Finches, as they were learning how to extract seeds from the Sunflower blossoms, perching on the stems or the large blossoms, while swaying in the wind.
