Home from vacation and trying to get back in gear.  This particular chicken took two days! The head was scraped over and over again. And when I declared the painting done.......I saw attitude!

6 x 6 , oil

You saw Blackie before I left on vacation.  She needed some editing and is stronger now. You can tell her body is slightly twisted and all her body lines are more confident.  She is sold and on her way to her new home......


  1. These are great, Helen!

  2. The head looks very freshly painted - no way of knowing it was a problem. You really know how to paint these chickens! Like the angle of the wall.

  3. Helen; You have a special touch in painting chickens...you must be from Petaluma!! RMM in FL
