Golden Crowned Kinglet
12" x 16", acrylic, 1989

This is one of my all-time favorite paintings. I had an old pair of boots lying around and figured that they would look great in a painting. I chose a golden-crowned kinglet because of its perfect size and appropriate colors. This painting sold in a flash. I swear, if there were 1000 people in the art gallery that day, I would have sold a 1000 of these! This is as close as I could ever come to creating a perfect composition. I envy the buyer of this painting. I wish I had never sold it.
