I hadn’t intended on making this so pink. It just happened. After looking at it for a week, I think I’m okay with it.
Painting a duck makes you realize how shiny they are. Tricky to capture.
Chickadees are one of the cutest, most cheerful birds around. And they always seem to be so curious and playful. Their little round bodies and happy songs are hard to resist. (Which is why I’ve painted another one, I guess).
A tiny painting can sometimes be a great study for something larger. I painted the 3″ painting with my usual series of tiny paintings for Christmas, then the larger one.
Yes, more birds. Only smaller this time.
Here’s something to brighten up our grey winter. And I finally remembered to take a photo of my work at the Corner Cup.
