Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 in. --  SOLD

This is a painting of our pet chicken, Nikki. I drove back from Pullman yesterday evening, after visiting Peter for several days. It's so nice to be back home and see our birds again. Nikki is a Rhode Island Red hen and one of our precious chicks. Nikki also means "Cinnamon" in Japanese. I really enjoy looking at her beautiful reddish plumage in various lighting effects. She is at the bottom of pecking order, and she likes to hang out with me all the time. She  loves lounging under my easel when I'm painting in my studio, or scratching the ground around my plein air easel in the backyard.
