Apple Blossom Chickadee has been nominated for the prestigious Pay it Forward Group by JackyP. This is what she said about your image -
“.this is a particular favourite of mine and always makes me smile :) The image seems to sum up the arrival of spring with the lovely blossom and little chickadee. Renee puts a lot of time and love into her work and the results are just pure bliss!!

Thank you so very much Jacky!

This art started out as a photograph of a black-capped chickadee sitting on a barren branch. After a very long winter (so far) I needed something that sang Spring time is just around the corner!

After a lot of fuss, and several hours, in Photoshop and Painter X this is the final result. Every pixel of this piece was re-painted (digitally) by hand. All of the apple blossoms and leaves were created from scratch. As a final touch I added some texture to the piece to give it that last little edge I was looking for.

I hope this image inspires you to dream of Spring :)

  • Thanks so VERY much Lois. I put so much time, effort & love into this one hun. I took my time….left it for a week or two, went back – added a bit more (this process went on for a while…lol). Instead of being in a rush to load…I made myself wait until I was absolutely CERTAIN I was happy with it :) You know how much I love the birds….maybe I’ll do more of these as that’s where my heart & passion lay the most :)
