This series of watercolours was inspired from winter hikes along the Jack Pine Trail in Nepean, where chickadees would greet you, hoping that you have a treat for them in your hand. Their favourite is black-oil sunflower seeds which they take directly from your palm, sometimes two at-a-time, and fly off to a nearby branch to extract the seed. The backdrop though is what captured my attention. The intertwined branches, void of all vegetation, created an abstract appeal and the perfect stage for these friendly birds.
