A blue ribbon hummingbird

Oil painting after one of my photos
of a hummingbird by artist Chris Barry.
The original photo can be seen in the "Birds" gallery
on my Facebook page.
Last year I was contacted out of the blue by someone called Chris Barry who was asking permission to use one of my photos of a hummingbird as a reference for a painting she was wanting to do for a friend. Since it is always so wonderful to encounter people who respect the copyright of my artwork I was happy to reply that I was ok for her to go ahead and use it.
Today I heard back from Chris who told me that the painting, which she described as a labor of love, turned out so much better than she had expected it to, and that it was awarded a first place ribbon by her art club. Congratulations, Chris!
