A dear friend commissioned a driftwood painting of chickadees. Sometimes driftwood inspires the subject matter that will be painted on it. I had to find the right piece in my handpicked stash of unique nature-made treasures from the beaches of Lake Ontario. In this case I saw some perfect opportunities to use the color and texture of the driftwood itself to suggest trees and entangled branches. I intend to create a winter scene with chickadees throughout the branches.
