So, as I said below, this week's Illustration Friday theme is "sugary." So here it is--sugary snow on a pine needle tuft hanging over the sugary syrup that humming-
birds love. I drew this with the help of a couple of pictures I took. The snowy pine needle tuft was in Gregory Canyon, Colorado in 1988. The hummingbird was drawn from a picture I took last summer--the same day as this one. My first thought for "sugary" was actually snow, but I wasn't sure how to draw it. I think it worked out. Maybe I still had snow and hummingbirds on my mind from last week's drawing for "packed."

Lovely Japanese watercolor aesthetic on this...And the juxtaposition of the hummingbird with the snowy branch is arresting.
