Wee winter birds

I love little winter birds. The chickadees and the sweet little dark-eyed juncos. The squirrels are certain that the feeders are filled for them, but it's those wee feathered bellies I'm trying to fill.


Once in a long while those wee dudes are very cooperative and pose oh so nicely for me (especially when bribed with seed!)


Inspired by those visits, I've painted a series of tiny canvases measuring between 2.5" and 2.75" square. You can find them all HERE. But here they are one by one...

  1. Oh those chickadee's............I just love them. I use to have a wild pet chickadee. He would land on me knowing I had seeds for him in my pocket. I could tell you some amazing stories of Fairlight........what I named him. Yes, I know he was a he.....long story. Thanks for sharing your sweet little paintings. Happy Holidays, whatever your faith.
