Colourful hummingbirds by Janet Weight Reed

Nothing like a gorgeous hummingbird painting to wake up to, and these are gorgeous.

My Life as an Artist (2)

I have been writing a blog for five years with a different server, but after many technical difficulties, I have decided to move here. 

As a working artist for forty years, I am known for my love of colour and spontaneous painting.  http://www.janetweightreed.co.uk      

Along with writing about my life as an artist, I will also post images that I am currently working on and occasionally watercolour tutorials.

Hummingbirds have always symbolised for me the ‘unseen magic’ in our world, and so for my first post I am offering several hummers.

I saw my first hummingbird in the mountains of North Carolina in 1968, and ever since have been in awe for these flying jewels.

I paint other subject and have a particular love for portrait painting, however, it seems fitting that I should start this new blog with hummingbirds.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I LOVE them… wonderful use of colour! Waking up to one of those riotous paintings every morning would put me in a great mood!
