Why did I paint chickens for over five years?
Because they are sweet, curious, intelligent, and funny.
Their colors, patterns, and feathers are truly beautiful, and they offer a wonderful combination of dignity and hilarious fun.
They are utterly vulnerable, and yet a hen will fiercely protect her chicks and a rooster will lay down his life for the flock.
I tried my best to represent and honor them with love.
New work that is still swirling around in my head and not on paper yet.
I paint with watercolors, with oil, and digitally with a Cintiq and Photoshop. I love it all, and have no favorite method. I am in love with beauty, color, animals, and humor.
Sometimes I want to convey something meaningful with my artwork, and sometimes I just want to be funny. Most of the time I just want to paint a plant or an animal of some kind.
