Goldfinch feathers molt into a drab olive green/brown color for winter. Many people upon seeing them assume they are looking at sparrows. Not a few believe goldfinches migrate for the winter because they no longer see that bright, brilliant yellow signature color. Not so! They’re here in their inconspicuous attire still seeking thistle.
In case you cannot find them this winter, as my Christmas gift to you, you may copy this artwork by right clicking on the watercolor above and selecting “Save image as”.
Actual photo of very hungry goldfinches outside my very dirty window. He, he, he.
Fern-Like Frost outside my clean window. Here is proof of the magic of winter… One can zoom in and study patterns in the frost for hours. Well, I sure can!
May your holidays be filled with peace and love.
Beautiful – thank you and Merry Christmas
Thank you, Ellen! May you have a happy and healthy new year!

You’re welcome Holly! Yes, those little guys are one of my top favorites….they are great!
Frost – what a miracle! Jack Frost is the ultimate designer/artist. 🙂
You have taken a beautiful photo of the frost – it can be hard to get a good picture of frost. Thank you so much for posting yours!
By the way – I enjoyed the step by step pastel of the November Sunset. It was most helpful – I know now why my pastels look so pale.
I laughed! Your mom would have been proud!
