I have painted this subject twice before with a different assortment of chickens. They are so fun to paint with their plumb bodies and different colored feathers. Not to mention their facial expressions! Each painting was larger and now this one is larger still. Another aspect of my job is deciding what size to paint. I don't have hard facts to help me with this, so I looked at what I've been painting lately and wanted a larger painting in the mix.
Day 30. 30 paintings in 30 days. This is the FINAL day. I must say YAY! Suddenly it is over and yet the journey uphill seemed quite daunting. I missed several days this week...but doesn't this painting count as 3??? I am very pleased with what I have turned out and will have a nice array of new paintings for the season. Two or three paintings from the batch are still unfinished, but all in all quite a feat.
