Whir of Color


6″ x 6″



Whir of Color depicts a male ruby-throated hummingbird about to pollinate fuschia. This scratchboard was first etched with a sharpened sewing needle. Next, iridescent watercolor paint was applied to the white scratches. Finally, a clear coat of varnish protects the artwork. This 6″ x 6″ scratchboard is a jewel in the Radiance Flies Christmas 2023 Collection.

I love the whir of the creature come
to visit the pink
flowers in the hanging basket as she does…
