what's for dinner?
This is a picture that I painted and posted a few months back. I am posting it again because of this weeks Daily Paintworks challenge. If you follow my blog you know I have a thing for chickens so I was so happy to see that this week is devoted to chickens. I want to paint Carol's photo of a chicken soon but thought I would post this one for now. I sold this one a while back but it is still one of my favorites. One reason is because my son, Ben, took the photo. He was in a rural area of China and said that the chickens would roam in and out of some homes. This one was going in for a snack.
Happy to report that yesterday's art show went very well. Got to meet and visit with so many people. This area is very supportive of local artists. Proud and hesitant to mention that I was awarded "best of show" which is a huge honor because there were lots of deserving artists. I knew it was going to be a good show when a couple bought one of my favorite quirky paintings of square dancers before the show officially opened. I love it when people buy funky paintings. And... my not so funky paintings too.sold
