Humming with Excitement

Layering energetic strokes of vivid watercolor paint, self-taught artist Sarah Janece Garcia turns a hummingbird study into a celebration of light and life. This piece captured the attention and admiration of our customers, winning our Art and Design Challenge.

Titled First Light, this piece was inspired by a Pueblo legend in which the hummingbird acts as the savior of the land and its people. In the story, the hummingbird comes to the rescue when the Pueblo land was threatened by fire. The bird flew to the north, south, east and west to gather rain clouds to extinguish the flames. During this heroic flight, the hummingbird flew through a rainbow and it is believed that this is where it got its magnificent colors.

By selecting colors naturally found in the hummingbird's plumes, such as deep emerald, sapphire blue, and fiery magenta, the artist is able to capture the frenetic energy and beauty of this tiny dynamo. her powerful piece adds a splash of color, imagination and whimsy to any wall it adorns. Made in San Antonio, Texas. Printed and framed in Portland, OR.

“My wish is for each painting to capture the freedom and vitality of nature in unexpected ways.”

Sarah Janece Garcia expresses her admiration for the natural world via heavily saturated watercolor paintings. Using a style that ranges from literal to abstract, Sarah's work is influenced by her passion for art in all forms, attraction to color, and adoration for nature's untamed splendor. "Nature's beauty enriches my soul and brings me comfort and happiness at the precise moment I need it," she says. "I feel very strongly that when I show love and respect for nature, nature always returns the favor."
