A chicken named Blanche. Available on Etsy.
I went a little abstract with the background. Not sure if I like it…
If I name a chicken after you (accidentally or on purpose), please don’t be offended. It doesn’t mean that you look or act or remind me of a chicken. Actually I find most of them to be quite beautiful. On the other hand, if you would like one of these chickens to have your name, please let me know!
This one’s for sale on Etsy.
Chickens. Not a very exciting name for a painting of chickens. This naming problem isn’t going to go away, as I have a few more chicken paintings planned. I could either number them (chicken 1, chicken 2, chicken 3), which would be really boring. Or I could just give them names, which is much more fun and adds a little personality. So, let me introduce you to Betty and Veronica.
This one is for sale on Etsy.
Finishing off the year with these three, all for sale on Etsy.
I have really enjoyed painting animals in 2016. The chickens seem to be very popular and are really fun to paint. 2017 is the year of the Rooster, so of course I will have to include a few in my art this year.
Happy New Year!

Or does anyone really want this stuff?
This is all a big experiment and self-promotion has never been my strength. But if I’m going to advertise, I guess this is the season to do it. So here’s my gift guide:
