The Chickadees on a pillow cover









































I had to think long and hard on what background these guys needed. After a while it was clear they would look best with a light grey linnen backing. I usually feel like I should stick to hues in the illustration. But not only is that very unpractical, it can be a bit boring. Thankfully the light grey emphasizes the softness of the illustration even more.
I am happy!

The Chickadees are lovely and you made a great choice in deciding to use the light gray linen backing for the pillow...it is the perfect compliment to those sweet little birds.
