chickadee

(8x8)

Chickadee without snow overlay and with ... the snow has the added benefit of covering up the (not so great) pine cones!
I'm going away for the weekend--down to Chincoteague, Virginia, where I'll have nowhere to go and nothing to do. Heaven.

This is beautiful! I prefer it without the snow, unless you meant it for a Christmas card.

I love the addition of the white, not only does it make the painting sing, but it adds alot of texture. :)Awesome!

I think he needed the dusting of snow to make him really perky, Laura :) Cute and fun and a great holiday card ready to happen - have a wonderful trip and time to spend doing nothing!

I love chickadees and I love your painting! Such winter slendor. Enjoy you time in Chincoteague. We went there on a vacation years ago. One of the hotels there had the best French toast I've ever had made with Bailey's and all kinds of yum.
