I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

|Newborn Chick, Original Chicken Art|
My latest series of original artworks features chicken paintings. Chickens and eggs are full of mystical and religious symbolism. I also enjoyed working with the aesthetic qualities of all the features both brown and white as well as the baby fuzzy yellow down.
Although all the art is done in watercolor, you do not need to frame this impressionist farm art under glass. I prepare and finish all my watercolors on canvas using archival techniques allowing you to enjoy the transparency of watercolor without the expense of custom framing. If an 8x10" frame is desired to finish the work, these are easy to find. Animals make wonderful nursery room decor. Chicken decor also enhances the country kitchen or any modern home.
In Newborn Chick, (above) a mother hen nestles near a newly hatched egg. The mother hen nesting is depicted in earth tones on a light blue background. A sweet yellow baby chick peers up at her mama. The brown earth tones contrast beautifully with the turquoise blue sky.
|Chickens Come Home to Roost, Original Farm Art|
|Rooster Art, Chicken-Hearted|
Chicken-Hearted depicts white hens and roosters in a dense flock. The chickens are depicted in white and reddish pink on a turquoise background. This lovely work would be excellent for Valentines Day. (especially good for that lover who is afraid to commit)
Which reminds me of an excellent quote: The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.~Martina Navratilova
