Red Oak Brewery
To show all the hummingbirds that visit North America.
The brewery has a "hummingbird beer", beer hall and art museum. This painting can be imagined as a map with only ruby throats on the right (east coast) and moving across the map to rufus in the north west.
The owner of the brewery wants to honor the hummingbird in as many ways as possible including feeders and plants for their benefit.
I created a "key" which allows the viewer to see the names of each hummingbird on the painting. It will be reproduced as a poster for the brewery gift shop.
