Hens & Chicks

Hens & Chicks                  8" x 10"               oil on linen panel
I haven't painted chicks in a very long time, so here you go.....no it's not spring yet, but the weather is mild here and I saw chickens running around in a pen just a few blocks away. This week temps are in the 40's and I've (almost) forgotten shoveling snow last week!

Not just chicks but fun, carefree, chicks. I love the energy you created in the whole painting. Very loose........sunny is a good word.

Ah...I just saw the baby chick and how adorable it is. Mother takes center stage though with her beautiful color and energy.

Beautifully painted Mary. Love those wonderful colors and the splashes of rich blues.. the light hitting the chickens are excellent.

This is jus lovely Mary! The eye is drawn right in to the glowing central chicken but not before dancing happily around what surrounds it! Just beautiful!!
