Fat Chickadee, 6" x 6", oil on panel

Click to Bid
The day was pale ochre and gray... at least from a bird's perspective in the trees. This soft palette was appealing to me while I was watching chickadees chirp, flit, and rest, among the oaks. Spots of yellow from the flowering oak catkins lended just a hint of interest. This is a Black-capped chickadee from my old backyard. This was done from a rough photo - I hope to move to plein aire, at some point!
