Mr. and Mrs. Chicken

I could not just do one chicken. So, may I introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Chicken, also known as Golden Hen and Red Rooster? I didn’t know what I wanted for a background, but I did know that I wanted complimentary colors for the birds. So, I chose the colors and then just started applying them and this happened and I love it. It almost looks like water. Lets just call it colorful, shall we? These are 9×13 soft pastels on velour paper.

Here are a couple of pictures of our real chickens. They are still out in the pen. The coop is almost ready, but we don’t want to move them into the coop when it is raining, because it is a circus when we are trying to catch them and get them out of the pen. Chicken poop is slippery enough without adding rain into the mixture. It is raining almost every day, though. So, we don’t know when they will be going into the coop. It will be nice when it is over and they are settling into their new home. They are two months old and we think we have two roosters, instead of the one that we wanted. We will get rid of one of them. I hope we choose the right one. LOL!

The building right behind the chickens is their coop. That is a hydrangea growing against it. They also have a fenced yard with a nice big mulberry tree. They love mulberries. There is also a grape vine growing along the fence on the one side. I think they will like it.

  1. Wow. You get to paint, AND you get to raise chickens.

    Way to go! They (Mr. and Mrs. chicken) both look really good. It looks like you blended the colors in very nicely.

    How exciting.
