Still Life with Chickadee

24″ x 12″

Oil on panel

Chickadees are happy little birds which add life to my still life paintings. I also like the challenge of painting white, which really never is made by using only white. “White” reflects all the colors from its environment. Thus, the chickadee’s white breast, the pussy willows, and the white sake bottle are actually picking up the warm tones from the table and backdrop. The glowing red grapes added a bit of interest for the chickadee and the viewer.
