"Gold Finch Study" by Astrid Paustian
A small Gold Finch painting in preparation for a larger commissioned piece.
I took the reference photo for this painting last August in our Sunflower patch. The Gold Finches visit every August in large flocks to feast and to teach their young ones how to pick the seeds while perching on top of the large flowers. It is quite a spectacle.
