Western Tanager




 14"x18" oil/panel by Sarah Siltala

Last year New Mexico seemed to have a deluge of western tanagers through the state during migration.  It was exciting to see the colorful birds flit through neighborhoods all over the state, we travel a lot and they were everywhere!  I was inspired to create a painting with complimentary blues and greens to set off the fiery color of the bird.  This work will be headed to Sage Creek Gallery for my upcoming show opening September 23rd.
