Kiki in the Nesting Box

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 inches -- Click here to bid

It's been so hot these days that many of our hens seem to be taking summer break from laying eggs. Kiki and a few others are the only hens who are laying eggs regularly. This painting is based on a photo I took while Kiki was resting in the nesting box. Kiki is a Barred Rock chicken with black and white stripes. But I modified her color and made nice contrast with the golden straw.
