This is from a songbird series I completed in 2008 for a local gallery. There was a lot of news reports talking about the failing economy while I was working on the series, so I decided to name it, “Reasons to Be Cheerful” because I find such joy and comfort in the natural world.
Thank you for all your kind remarks. I do think this is one of the best paintings I’ve done to date. (It’s all about the values, people!)
