It’s been almost a year to the day to when I first painted these little guys! I really need to catch up on my blog entries… 😉
Back when I was first dreaming up the Fat Animal Magnet as last year’s Christmas presents, I was planning on just doing these little songbirds. But once I started playing around with the idea of Fat Animals… it snowballed from there!
Still, these guys were some of my favorites and I was a little torn on what species to pick when it came time to paint them. There are a lot of songbirds that will work with this general shape, although I really want to do a variation so I can have a fat Bluejays and Cardinals later.
I settled on the Chickadee and Bluebird because those were my personal favorites. The last little gilded guy was in theme with the season, since I was dreaming in garlands. As of right now only the little bluebird has flown away home, so the other two should be showing up in the Etsy store reboot.
