A drive along the coast of Captiva Island is like a drive through the forest, alternating beach and lush tree growth with the smell of the ocean in the air. This piece was juried into the Capture Captiva exhibit.

Chickadees somehow appear out of no where every year when the snow flies, they travel in small groups like gypsies coming in for a quick meal at the feeder and then they’re gone. Oil and watercolour versions, they both have their own qualities.Chikadees hdChickadees hd
