"Rainbow Finch"

Well...we decided to keep the Seagull painting..."Mine" so I needed an alternate.  I chose a Rainbow Finch, native to Australia.  I plan to submit it for the bird painting sale at the Audubon Bird Festival in November.

"Mine?" by Loretta Sampson

5 views of Seagulls that landed on the hood of my husbands work van on various times he stopped at a fast food restaurant in Astoria, OR.  He sent me the pictures throughout the year labeled...."my friend."  I never knew what to expect.  Cracked me up every time.  I thought putting them together would be fun.  I may use this for my submission to the Audubon Society Bird festival 6 x 6 painting sale.  (I may paint something else for the festival.)
