Broad-Billed Hummingbird by Andrew Denman <Back to Thumbnails "Pinnacle #3: Broad-Billed Hummingbird"
24 x 6"
Acrylic on Cradled Board
Broad-Billed Hummingbird

My Tucson Arizona garden is simply busting with these glorious hummingbirds. With their beautiful palette of blues and greens and the gorgeous red-orange bill, these little birds are unmistakable. I am fortunate to watch them sip from aloe blooms and firecracker flowers nearly every morning as I sip my coffee over breakfast. I am certain they will inspire many more paintings to come.

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.
