Hummingbird Artist -- & I.D. Question

Hummingbird at Mexican Sage
When Bob Rizzotti of Waldwick saw my column on the rescued hummingbird in The Record, he was nice enough to pass along a painting of a hummingbird he had done.

The plant is Mexican sage, according to Bob. Can anyone I.D. the hummer?

Bob writes:

I saw picture on web site of a California photographer whose work I occasionally paint (he likes my work so he encourages me to paint his photos). 

I’ve been painting for 17 years (after I retired) and I’ve lived in Waldwick for almost 45 years. I’m also an actor and spent my entire professional career in the public sector  (28 yrs at The Port Authority ) and was a Waldwick councilman after I retired in 2000.

Thanks, Bob!
