Perfect for the Re-Purposed Frame
Though the May warbler wave is long over, I began this painting 2 months ago when they were sweeping through. The oak leaf hydrangea, pictured here, holds on to its dried blooms from the previous year as it's growing new leaves, producing a multi-season effect. The redstart is one of the first warblers I ever observed many years ago and is much easier to identify than most other warblers.
