Sweet Spire

Sweet Spire

Pastel on UArt 500 Sanded Paper

A few summers ago when my big Blue Agave bloomed, I had the opportunity to gaze upon it's beauty from my studio window. As it crossed from spike, to buds, then finally went into full bloom, it became a fly thru diner for the hummingbirds. I guess I never really thought about it before, but of course Agave flowers are just like other flowers, filled with sweet nectar for the hummingbirds. It was such a treat to watch them zip about enjoying their smorgasbord tower of treats.

  1. Nice play of color between the background and blossom shapes.
