Looking For Amour



8 X 6 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
NFS

I should have posted this on Monday for Valentine's Day but couldn't get to it. The family is keeping me busy.

With his bold red breast this gentleman is dressed to impress. What a romantic place he has found for a perch too. Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?

Striking! I think that this is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I am no bird expert...I googled it! Great job!

Don't know the name of this bird, he sure is a handsome boy! Beautifully painted.

Never heard of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but, I know a good painting when I see one!

Thanks for including me in your Etsy treasury.

I know it was said, but I second, "striking". d
