Chickadee-Dee, 7h 19w

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 favourites are black-oil sunflower seeds which they would take directly from your palm, sometimes two at-a-time, and fly off to a nearby branch to extract the seed. The choreography, or perhaps lack there off, with each taking turns is mesmerizing and fun for all ages.

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.
The following two watercolours are the latest in this extremely popular series, experimenting with a wide panoramic format.
