Chickadee in Autumn

9" x 12" Oil on Canvas
Commissioned Painting
This is the result of a commissioned painting. The client requested an oil painting depicting a chickadee on a branch with autumn color in the background in a "painterly, slightly abstracted style" similar to other birds I have done. What do you think about this one? I have to say that no matter how hard I try to get a good photo, the true essence of a painting never really comes through. Especially with oils, I think the texture and visual richness is always missing in a photographic image of a painting. Click on the image for a more detailed view. I hope he likes the painting. I really enjoyed painting it with all of the bright glorious colors of autumn. I hope you like it too. Thanks for looking.

This is beautiful, bright and cheerful. It is even better when you click on it and can see some of the texture. Your client will love it! Vicki

I can see all that brush texture just great when I clicked on the photo. You really did a magnificent job of bringing that color up with this. I am sure this will be more than "acceptable" to your client, he and hiw wife should absolutely love it.

This is very nice. I like that you chose to make the bird and branch more detailed and refined, while leaving the autumn leaves sort of an impression.
