Oil on wooden panel ~ 5 x 7.25 inches
A couple of days ago I finished the little Chickadee painting and added it to my
Etsy store. I ended up changing the background to a darker color, because I wanted the little bird to stand out better. I hope you like the new design.
Here are some magnified close-up shots ~

I have refilled my bird feeders and every day when I move the easel outside, I am greeted by a flurry of activity. With the arrival of Spring the birds are looking for supplies to built their nests in order to lay their eggs. So while I continue to work on my little Chickadee I listen to the birds songs and enjoy nature to its fullest. Here is another update of the "The Little Chickadee Bird" in progress.
It's time to relax a bit after all the detail work involved in the "Court Dancer" and I thought why not paint something with a nice Spring theme. Since the weather has been pleasant in southern California, I took a few paints and my brush and found a sunny spot in the garden to work. More updates will follow soon ~
