Yellow Headed Blackbirds

"Marsh Princes"
9 x 7 image, soft pastel
Framed 12 x 15, $275

I have a thing for blackbirds and have painted the red-winged blackbird lots of times. But on a trip to eastern Oregon I saw the yellow-headed blackbird for the first time. Even the female of this species gets a little color. Whenever you see them they're in charge of their habitat. What painter could pass up trying to capture that beautiful yellow?
