How to buy

I’ve only encountered Rufus Hummingbirds in the wild on a very few occasions. Having grown up with hummingbirds that are at least predominantly green, there is something magical about these rust brown and orange birds with their fiery iridescence. I encountered this particular bird in the hummingbird aviary of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, though now that I am living in Arizona, I have a much greater chance of seeing these little gems in my own garden. Fingers crossed and eyes peeled!

“Hum,” like much of my work, is about the contrast between illusionistic and flat, decorative elements, but it is also a serious exercise in simplicity. I have made every effort to strip down this tiny composition to its barest essentials. The result is something very pure, vital, and special.
