Barred rocks rock

Did I say I LOVE drawing chickens??? Worth a ride to key west to just draw chickens.

I actually followed the chickens around at the homestead in the great Smokey’s National Park to draw these Barred Rocks. Too much fun.

I used to not like chickens. That’s before I started drawing them in all their infinite variety.

And somebody please tell me why I love to draw anything and everything when I am out of town. Staring at a bulldog lamp that’s saying draw me draw me. I don’t get that at home.

    These are particularly well done. Lovely brush work. Background adds a lot of atmosphere. Great depictions of the birds with balanced composition. Alexis

    I don’t know anyone who produces as much art as you do. Much of it is in watercolor which is a difficult medium. I had a friend who once pointed out a still life in a display n told me he ‘d been broke n hungry n had made the arrangement n painted it before consuming the articles. I can not help but wonder, are you vegan or do you love chicken in more ways than one? the one on the far right w/his or her feet spread apart seems comical.

      Hmm. No not vegan though u would like to be just do t have the will power and enjoy a bit of chicken or a burger too much. If I had to kill them I could NOT ever eat them. A personal short coming. πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“
