Chickadee Abstract in Blue and Brown

The above is my entry for this month’s Wilderness Art Challenge on a blog of the same name hosted by the esteemed painter Gary Keimig. Here’s a link to his blog:

http://wildernessartchallenge.blogspot.com/

While this challenge is mainly geared to painters, I enter fine art photos on occasion. I do my best to either make my photo entry look painterly, or at least very different from the original photo that Gary posts to inspire our creativity. In this case, “Chickadee Abstract in Blue and Brown” comes from a photo he posted of a Mountain Chickadee.

Participating in the Wilderness Art Challenge is fun. Anyone interested go check it out. I’m sure you’ll be welcome to join in!

This looks like an abstract painting in water-colors. Without the title “Chickadee...”, I would have no idea what it’s about and I sighed in amazement to see a bird and twigs in other participants’ works.

I have seen Gary Keimig blog and am amazed that this little bird can appear in so many different ways. Great challenge!

what a great piece you entered. i love the difference between yours and the original photo one was to draw from. thanks for sharing his site also as i like trying to draw things from nature. i always look for new things to put into my art journal and his challenges are the perfect addition. hope all is well.

It does look like a painting, or a quilt. I think I see an ostrich. :)
