My friend Kim, at Coral Cottage (now Red Dirt Farm) takes thee most beauty-ful photos I've ever seen. If you visit her blog, please also visit her page with just her photos. You will be stunned. She should be published. She is a bird-lover, artist, dog rescuer, cat-lover. Good wife and daughter. Amazing cook. Decorator of her lovely homes, and her chicken houses. They have mirrors and sheet music on the walls to look at (in the chicken houses). The birds are guarded inside when they need it. She is a mother to fowl and four-footed.
I asked permission to paint from some of her photos.
*By the way-if you are going to use ANYONE'S photos from the Internet, ALWAYS get permission, and ask if there is a fee. You MUST do this. Kim kindly gave me permission to use whatever tickled my fancy....*
So, being chickenless, I was drawn to her feathered kids, and here's one I have done in acrylics for her.
This is painted on Strathmore 246 lb. paper with Liquitex professional soft body paints. It measures 6 inches by 6 inches. I am happy with how it turned out, and my best fan, my husband Geoff, loved it too. So off it travels to Virginia....
Kim-is it Winter? (the chicken's name)
My goat, Ricardo, always props up my paintings so I can step back and get a better look at them.
I asked God for help with this painting.
Thank You, Precious Savior.
I am humbled...
