Although this is not one of my usual landscape paintings, I wanted to give the white rumped shama a try with my knife. The shama is one of my favorite song birds and we have a few that like to visit our tropical garden. This painting was done about 5 weeks ago, with the start of the coronavirus lockdown in Hawaii. Not knowing what to expect over the next few weeks or months, I would hear the little white rumped shamas, singing their beautiful songs each morning. They didn't seem too worried about the days ahead, which gave me a great sense of hope (and inspiration to paint something different).
