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.
