I painted this Rose-breasted Grosbeak after walking through a meadow close to my home and seeing many beautiful birds flying, resting, and nesting close by.
The male Rose-breasted Grosbeak is a striking bird with a bold black and white plumage, punctuated by a deep rose in the middle of its white breast.
He spends much of his time in the treetops and his song and distinctive metallic, chink, call-note, make it easier to find. Unlike many songbirds, both the male and female Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are known to sing.
As you may know, I love painting birds and this one is definitely a favorite of mine.
