It is amazing how many paintings one can get from one site visit!  This is the fourth painting from the Boston Mill/Thompson Mill park I visited in late June of this year.  Although several of the landscapes were started on site, not surprisingly these chickens moved too quickly for me to paint them. I took some photographs and worked from those.

I was sitting on a low stool and this chicken came right up to me.  Even though I could have reached down and touch it I didn’t want to alarm the bird and have it turn on me!

  1. Chickens are cool! I had a pet chicken when I was a kid (no joke)! Anyway you have captures their perky personality, and they can be intimidating if provoked.

  2. Carolee, you are amazingly talented! Love your painting of the farmyard bird! Enjoyed meeting you at your opening at Jason’s gallery. He is such a help to artists and I’ve been fortunate to be mentored by him. Am working now for gallery representation. Continued success to you with your beautiful paintings!
