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!

Most bodies of work help to suggest the next body of work, and such is the case here with the two “Pinnacle” paintings. A Different Animal also included a body of work called “Ornaments,” which featured a variety of birds interacting with or perching on golden baubles. In the Pinnacle series, those baubles have evolved into exaggerated plinths terminating in delicate perches for hummingbirds. As with the Ornaments, the use of precious metal leaf compliments the jewel-like quality of the birds. It’s worth pointing out that the strong sense of verticality as well as the tension, balance, and poise essential to these pieces is also an outgrowth of the Totem series.
