I couldn't decide whether to title this one "Headphones with iPod" or "iPod with Headphones". I had settled on the former but then I decided to see if the original request could inform me better. The email said the requester wanted "an iPod with studio style headphones". So there you go. The iPod is the star of this painting. The headphones, that actually take up more real estate, are the plus one.

You guys should be impressed with this one because this painting is way bigger than an actual hummingbird so I clearly had to get all the details right and it's surprisingly hard to get a hummingbird to stay still enough for live modeling.

This is for a girl named Khadia. Well, maybe it's for an elephant named Khadia. I have a hard time believing that an elephant could email me a request, though. I mean, look at those feet. How could she type? Oh wait, she could push one letter at a time with her trunk. Ok yeah, this painting is probably for an elephant.

This painting is far too 'Murica for me to use black. These colors don't run. I think it's funny that people say that about red, white and blue for America while France has the stereotype of surrendering and they have the same freakin' colors.
