Black-capped Chickadee and Iris by A E RuffingI painted this familiar bird looking alert and inquisitive, the way I often see him in the garden. He’s a striking little bird, and I think the soft mauves of the iris make him look all the more dramatic, with his sharply-contrasted blacks and whites and grays. I set him against a pale yellow sky, with a deep blue-shadowed tree and distant woods of golds, greens, mauves, and blues behind him.
