I had such a difficult time deciding which image to submit this week! I have some real gems of both American Goldfinches and House Finches, so narrowing it down was a real challenge

But he dangled on the end of this snow covered pine branch after one of this year’s first winter snow storms, contemplating his next move. I love the contrast of his vivid rosy pink coloring against the snow, the tilt of his head, the over the shoulder glance which shows off both his pretty pink head and interesting wing markings. Christmas card perfect!

I am a Texas artist in Fort Worth and would like permission to oil paint this finch. I would credit your photo on the back of the canvas.
