Songbird Art And Poetry By Me!
"The tiny chickadee rests amidst the blossom's of the cherry tree;
With a carefree and cheerful heart she sings ...."chickadee dee dee dee".
Preening her feathers in the dappled morning light, a happy songbird she be!"
~ Artist Laura Leeder
Carefree Chickadee, Mixed Media Collage, May 2018
By Artist Laura Leeder
This little character was quite fun to paint! I have spent many an hour, working in my flower beds and listening to the chickadee's as they danced across the branches overhead. They accompany me often on my country walks, flitting from tree to tree, singing their carefree melody. They are a curious bird and I sometimes think that they enjoy watching us as well.
This painting is 8 x 10 inches, completed on a wood panel using mixed media techniques that include: collaged papers, watercolour and acrylic paints, permanent ink markers and items for creating texture. The background is built up in several layers using light creamy colors and a variety of techniques to create the texture. I have also used two of my new rubber stamps from "Art Foamies", a local artisan/craft business. (the one most visible is the small swirl shape)
Please note: I use only professional artist quality materials.
This painting is not yet listed in my shop, however, if you are interested in purchasing it or just want more information, you can email me.
Wishing you a Spring filled with an abundance of blooms!
Creatively Yours, Laura Leeder
