4x6” mini original watercolor $275
UPDATE: I was told this is a male house Finch!
So my notes say Purple Finch, seems reddish to me but I don't know my birds all that well! It was standing in the snow eating bird seed. A cute little thing!
We actually stayed home all day today. I spent way too much time trying to fix Grandpas shredder. At some point he must have shredded a plastic mailing bag... they do NOT shred! He must have tried to fix it and broke off one of the teeth, took me a long while to figure that out. So I pretty much wasted a few hours. Linda is glued to her desk, I think she is still there! She is closing out our year, gathering tax info, paying sales tax, filing papers... All I know is I was asked to please be quiet so she can think!!
The species name, purpureus, comes from Latin and means “crimson” or other reddish color. Our word “purple,” meaning a color obtained from mixing red and blue, derives from the Latin, purpureus. The Purple Finch is really a crimson colored finch. But you've painted a male house finch. The Purple Finch looks like it was dipped in red wine. <3 Jackie Hintz
