I love painting our native birds, but I must admit that I have always wanted to paint the flying jewels which are hummingbirds. My Quixotic and Exotic exhibition was the perfect opportunity to do this. These colourful little birds with a selection of our native bees attracted to the passionflowers are the basis of this painting The Birds and the Bees.
