"Just Us Chickens"

Only have one more week of class, where I have

done pages I never would have done according to

suggested subjects. Lesson 5 was

more or less, Fur, Feathers and Folks.
The smallest chicken here came to visit me

on my front porch from the neighbors up the road.

The big one lives at my daughters where

she has many free range chickens that are

harder to photo than the long legged one.

He is a Malay Rooster (in his cage....I changed

his color so he would show up) in a

huge New England Poultry show nearby.

Hundred of them all the colorful breeds

and the cream of the crop--all making their

clucks and cockadoodledos.. I felt I had

hit the jackpot for chicken photo ops....


This is pencil, pen, watercolor

pencil, bit of gesso and waterbrushes in a

Moleskine sketch journal.

I do love your chickens. I'm a real bird fan and yours can cluck in my yard anytime.

I think you are ready to publish again. The chickens are fabulous. You've capture the personality of a comingled range or not.

Each of your chickens has its own personality--no doubt about it. I love the big one's feathery feet.
