"Rock Star"

"Rock Star" 12x20 acrylic

I struggled for several months with this painting. I was happy with the rocks and ferns, but couldn't seem to nail the bird. So I tried several times with multiple bird species, never really happy with the results. Finally, after the magnolia warblers and white-throated sparrows were painted out, a black-capped chickadee took up residence and seemed right at home.
