Oil on canvas, 12 x 12 inches -- $450 (framed) Available
This is a larger version of "Puffy the Chicken" which I did earlier. Puffy is a Barred Rock hen. Our chickens are free-ranged, and like scratching the ground, hunting for bugs, around the stepping stones in the front yard. It's fun watching them from the living room window. This painting is based on a photo I shot one morning in the fall. Puffy suffered from egg yolk peritonitis which is a common cause of death for hens, and she passed away a few years ago. But she lives in eternally in my art.
