I don’t know a lot about chickens but I had a client ask me to paint his. This was the first time someone who wanted a painting didn’t have a picture to give me. He wanted me to come to his farm and take my own photographs. I did. He said paint what inspires me.

What I learned from this experience is to provide a sketch of my vision before I begin to paint. I had not done that. He assumed I was going to paint the chickens in one way but I painted them in another.

It was a learning experience and I hoped he really did love the pictures as he claimed. But next time I will approach this commission entirely different. Show a sketch then pick up a brush. These are the final paintings.
