My Little Chickadees

New this fall - more chickadees. The stiff structure and variegated foliage of the zebra grass in my garden provides the right backdrop for the black-capped chickadees. The grass was just about to bloom at the time, but I didn't want the plumes in the painting. I thought they would cause too much visual clutter. For some reason, I don't want to paint just one chickadee. They are too small and social to appear alone.
