In Living Color

A flock of jewel-toned hummingbirds beautifully capture a Pueblo Indian legend passed down through the generations. This joyous painting is part of Sarah Janece Garcia's suite of hummingbird paintings.

The tale tells of how the brilliant hummingbird gained its plumage through an act of bravery. According to legend, the tiny bird flew to the rescue when Pueblo land was threatened by fire. It flew to the north, south, east, and west to gather rain clouds to extinguish the flames. During its heroic flight, the hummingbird shot through a rainbow, and it is believed that this is where it got its majestic colors. Sure to add a flight of fancy to any wall it adorns, Sacred Sun celebrates this aviary hero through bold brushwork and splashes of color. Made in Dallas, Texas. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

“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."
