Feeding Birds, Creator Clementine Hunter 1981

Acrylic on masonite painting of a woman feeding a red bird. The woman stands in left profile view wearing a long light blue dress, red apron, black shoes, and blue hat with yellow and red decorations. She holds a blue bag and is dropping birdseed toward the ground. In front of her, a large red bird hovers near the ground, eating the seeds. The ground is a simple green strip at the painting’s bottom. The background is mostly cream-colored with a narrow strip of cloudy blue sky at the top.
