European Goldfinch - Male




So, here's my latest bird - a male version of the female I posted before Christmas.

I think he's very pretty, but what I really love about this one is the background. I am super, super happy with it. :)



And here's a close up of all my little cut up bits, post accent painting.

Working on something different next week - come see!
