Chickadee #1 (Hand-Pulled Collagraph of Bird on Blue)

When I was growing up my parents set their bird feeder up so that it was attached to the house and could be reached from the dining room window. I remember opening the window and sticking my hand out the window and sitting very still and having the chickadees come to feed. Recently I thought I would try to create a collagraph of one of these guys since I see them daily at my bird feeder. Initially I intended it to be black and white, but decided to carry it further. Somehow the black and white didn't quite work. I have included a photo of the black and white stage prior to adding color (below).

  1. I'm more partial to black and white prints, but your colored print is very nice! Love the imagery!
