#2 in the new triptych

This new little oil painting is painted on a 6 x 6" gallery wrapped canvas.  It is the second one in my triptych.  The "sparrows" are an ongoing series in my miniature oil paintings.  You can see the first one in the series in a previous post.

You can find House Sparrows most places where there are houses (or other buildings), and few places where there aren't  Along with two other introduced species, the European Starling and the Rock Pigeon, these are some of our most common birds. Their constant presence outside our doors makes them easy to overlook, and their tendency to displace native birds from nest boxes causes some people to resent them. But House Sparrows, with their capacity to live so intimately with us, are just beneficiaries of our own success.
