Colourful hummingbirds by Janet Weight Reed

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 am just recently getting acquainted with your artwork on fb, but liked it so much when I saw you were starting a blog I wanted to follow it! Your watercolors are amazing….and, I also find hummingbirds a delight. My “thing” is nature photography and I have many pics of hummingbirds that visit our flowers and feeder. I look forward to more pics and look forward to your book!

      Good morning Carla, and thank you so much for your comment. It is much appreciated. I have been writing a blog for five years on another platform. That blog will stay live and be listed as my ‘archive blog’ on my website, at http://www.janetweightreed.co.uk I am gone all day today, but will take a look at your page tomorrow to hopefully see some of your hummingbirds. I am working on the little book as we speak, and hopefully it will be printed at the beginning of September. I will keep you posted.

      Hi Tony,
      Thanks for signing up. There is no question that this is a far superior site to BCUK.
      I will really get going on it next week, when I have more time and resume work on the large canvas.

      Janet.
