New Flower Paintings

New Chicken Paintings


At the beginning of a gallery opening the other night, before it
had turned into a mob scene, a friend asked if I had a theme yet
for this year's paintings. I didn't, but with an hour, when all of
the chicken paintings had sold out, and people were asking if I
would have more, I decided that chickens would be at least one
of the themes. I have more than seventy hens, so I'll never be at
a loss for subject matter, and the chickens are very clever about
coming up with new poses. Some of the best eggs in New England and
enough manure to fertilize the farm are added bonuses. So stay tuned
for more chicken paintings!
