About this artwork

When I lived in New Mexico, I painted humming birds into my landscapes, like this image of a bright bird resting in a thicket of red desert blooms, says Tara. A dark night sky sets off the contrast of gestural brushstrokes. Tara frequently covers her canvas in a purple wash of paint before painting. You may notice the flicker of purple in the background, in between the rich reds, greens and golds.
