Fine art illustration of an American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis.)
The American Goldfinch was completed on 12.5.2010. Goldfinches are such lively and beautiful songbirds. I added an illustration of a goldfinch to Laura Erickson’s book ‘101 Ways to Help Birds‘ perched on a birdfeeder. They have so much character and they stand out at a birdfeeder. The drawing is based on a photo by talented wildlife photographer Les Piccolo.
