Description A young chickadee crashed into my studio window. I went out and picked up the little thing, finding it stunned but not seriously injured. He hopped to a nearby persimmon tree and looked terribly unhappy as the first snow flurry of the season started to fall. He sat there a long time as I sketched him for this painting, a reminder of what was, for him, a very bad day.
