Bird Series - Baltimore Oriole, © Carol Nelson Fine Art



I did a bird series about a year ago which did not photograph that well, so I'm reposting them with photos taken with my new camera. Each painting in this series is painted on a Baroque Artist Panel. These are cradled hardwood panels that provide a smooth surface ideally suited for fine detail work.

The Baltimore oriole was a frequent visitor to my Mom's feeder where I grew up in Minnesota. They especially love oranges and grape jelly to snack on. I wish we had them here in Colorado where I now live, but I think they don't like the altitude or the low humidity here.

For purchase information, please see my website.

This is lovely, Carol. I love the way you've captured the tying on of those oranges and the brightness of spirit of this little bird. Too, I appreciate knowing that they like oranges and jelly! I don't know why that surprises me but it does and it is a cool little fact to know!

I love this painting, Carol. The oranges make such a wonderful addition to the bird on the branch!!

Reminds me of third grade when I wrote a report on Baltimore Orioles. Lovely colors!
