Funky Leghorn Strut...

Funky Leghorn Strut, 11-1/2 x 13, acrylic on panel

This matronly hen will go on sale at the Heritage Center this week unless she struts right out of the picture.
It's been a pretty good week. I sold When Trees Bleed, and Poised, and the two little Tuxedo Cats painted on tin - and - A Bear Board; literally two bear cubs painted onto a wonderful old weathered board that was 12" wide.

It was fun painting this. My goal was to keep as much of the natural texture and color of the board itself. I painted only the parts that weren't part of the "tree" or bears. I love the fractured ends and the actual holes left were knots fell out. I don't know how old the board actually was, but it will endure yet as another form of "tree." Size is approximately 42 x 12. Tres rustic...

And a thank you to you, Roy, for allowing me to paint "Poised" from your photograph.

And Thank, Shiela, you all always so positive and sweet.

Patrice, Your work conveys that you actually have FUN while painting.
Bravo!
Not many artists can convey this.
(Prolly why you're selling like hotcakes in this economy?)
You go, girl. Proud to "know" you!
Create On.
