Tomo on the Snow

Oil on linen on panel, 6"x 6" -- SOLD

This is a painting of our pet chicken walking on the snow. Tomo is one of our pet chickens. She is a Delaware hen. Our chickens are free-range in our backyard. At the beginning of each snow season, they are reluctant to walk on the snow, and they tend to stay inside the coop all day. But after a few days, they start to roam around, especially on sunny days, to take advantage of warm sunshine. They also like eating snow. When it's really cold outside, we invite them into a designated area in our house so that they can lounge and warm up during the day. Then they go back to their coop to sleep before dark. Some of them insist to stay with us a little longer, so I end up carrying them back to the coop, and tuck them in.
