11" x 30" acrylic/gouache on watercolour paper.
Here in the Canadian Rocky Mountains chickadees are wonderful engaging four season companions. As the days grow warmer and food becomes more plentiful chickadees focus their energies on the raising of two batches of young before the cooler days of fall settle in.
This painting uses the patterns of the birds and clouds to evoke a feeling of spring's promise. “Spring” is the fourth in a series of four paintings celebrating the seasons.
