I have a certain fondness for Chickadees now that my son has spent two years in the wonderful "Chickadee" classroom at Schlitz Audubon Nature Preschool. So when this little bird landed on top of a cattail, it was a perfect combo for a painting. And, it is now uplifting to hear them singing their spring song as we look forward to the next season.
Foul weather? Yes, for snow lovers like me it's been a rough season. Think I've painted out twice this winter, despite the fact that I bought TWO boxes of foot warmers back in October, thinking I'd be fully prepared for another exciting season of snow and ice. So, I'm in my little, cozy studio painting chickens and cows and lots of fun stuff! Thanks to the chickens of Monches Farm for always providing such amazing inspiration!!!
