These two commissioned pieces were done in the summer, to be a gift for someone who loves his backyard birds.

Adding a few flowers to my bird paintings has been fun. It’s a nice opportunity to try out new colour combinations. I can’t remember the last time I used pink!
I clearly have a thing for Chickadees, since this is the third one I’ve painted recently. I’m pretty happy with how they’ve turned out. And even happier that one has sold!
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).
Here come the birds. I am very lucky to live in a place where birds stay year-round. Lots of ideas and inspiration for little bird paintings to come.
