"Happy Spring Chickadee"
8 x 8, oil on board
I took my younger son shopping yesterday and on the way back home we passed a beautiful pink blooming tree. I went back by the home and pulled in the driveway and my son took some pics for me with his phone. I wish I knew all the names of the trees, but I didn't know what kind of tree this one was... I think I've figured out that it's a pink magnolia tree. So I was set up yesterday afternoon painting something totally different, and this sweet little chickadee perched itself on a tree limb right outside my window. I quickly picked up an 8 x 8 board and sketched it, but surprisingly, he just sat there for quite some time. I think he was enjoying me admiring him :) He just hopped from tree branch to tree branch, looking every direction... allowing me to paint him. I think he's enjoying Spring :) Happy Easter, everyone!
