This chicken looks happy just doing it's thing.

6"x6" unframed :: oil on panel

something new - just for fun - music: what I was listening to when I painted this:
Bill Frisell - Further East/Further West

She does look happy! I love how you handled the background. lots of movement.

I really like this. I like the way you painted the background and I like the dark line around the chicken.

This is wonderful. The brushstrokes are so bold and free. I just love it!

Nice chicken Cathleen. I think this is a good subject for your painterly style; it makes convincing feathers. I took some photos of chickens at the stock show this past weekend for ref. material. Now I just need to get painting!
