"Walkin' the Walk"  Original oil painting  Unframed  6" X 6"

Again, I can say, painting chickens makes me happy.  I love the contours, the softness of feathers, the solidity of form and the colors.  This is the first time I have painted a white chicken and I am very happy with the result.  I have been working this year at plein-aire work and particularly with the effect of light on the subject.  I think this painting advances that vibrant light effect that I am working toward.  "Sparkle" is what comes to mind when I evaluate this one.  It is exactly what I envisioned when I began this piece.  Expect more chicken paintings in the future, because I truly love them as subjects!
