That Bird of mine - American Robin
That Bird of mine (American Robin), 7.75" diameter, Mixed Media.
I don't think there is a more North American bird than the American Robin. It may not stand out as much as the Bald Eagle, but it is found in our backyards across the continent, even breeding in Alaska. From Canada to Mexico, this bird is typically seen grazing in the grass for worms, perhaps inspiring the "early bird gets the worm" idea. I'm not sure if that's true, but I personally associate it with that little phrase. And because it is so abundant, perhaps you have an appreciation for or a positive experience with this little black and orange bird - Or maybe it brings you joy every spring when you hear it's song.
This painting's title is inspired by an old favorite poem of mine by Emily Dickinson, I have a bird in Spring (#5).
