The keel-billed toucan is native to Central America. Best known for its oversized bill, it is a large and colorful bird with black plumage, a bright yellow throat and cheeks, vibrant red feathers under its tail and a yellow-green face. Its light green, banana-shaped bill is splashed with orange and tipped with red and blue, and can grow to be a third of the size of the toucan’s 20-inch body. Though cumbersome looking, the bill is actually quite light because it is made of protein and supported by hollow bones. The toucan’s very broad wings, however, are heavy and make flight laborious.

“Canadian Warbler” is an original acrylic painting on a miniature 2.5 x 2.5 inch stretched canvas. The canvas is backed with a magnet, so the painting can be displayed either on an easel or on a metal surface.
I love working with these small canvases. They lend themselves so well to subjects such as small birds. They are also popular with customers. I have a lot of fun with them and plan to do more, maybe with different subjects.

“Northern Bluebird” is a pretty little painting of a bluebird perched on a snowy branch. It’s one of several tiny paintings I made in November of 2019 for an art sale. I must admit I had a ball painting this colorful little bird. And the miniature paintings were a success at the art sale! I sold them with a small wooden easel to display them on. I plan to do more as part of my regular painting routine.
