Mourning Light

Oil Painting Bird Portrait Dove Wildlife

Oil on hardboard, 6" x 8".

A mourning dove was sunbathing on a deckrail and made a striking backlit figure.  I loved the way the dove's head looked against the bright colors of the landscape, but I was also intrigued by the subtle blue/grey feathers underneath her wing.  These birds are always welcome ground-feeders at our home.
