Mississippi Mockingbird

5 x 7 oil on gessobord

I am feeling very rusty, it's been so long since I've painted.  I've wanted to paint our state bird for some time and decided to give it a try today.  We have lots of these in Mississippi.  Although they can be mean birds, they have a beautiful sound and mimic other birds' sounds. 


  1. Haha-your mockingbird looks like he's ready to dive-bomb a cat. We get them up here but not lots. I find them to be so funny. Nice job.

    1. I think that's what he had in mind Stephanie. Thank you.
