Amish Chickens

There really is no such thing as Amish chickens but I saw these feathery friends when we stopped at an Amish bakery in Kingston, Wisconsin. If you have never been to an Amish bakery you need to go and go now. It is soooo delicious.

So as I’m enjoying my cinnamon roll I see these chickens running around. Had to take their picture. Of course it means a painting.

This is a small acrylic. 5″x7″. I’m trying to stock up on small paintings for an upcoming event in Watertown. Lets hope I sell all that I have painted. 😃

Farm Chickens

Sometimes it’s just a test

Sometimes I paint something just to see if I can. Bird’s nests are hard and I don’t know why it is. My friend recently painted a bird’s nest and I had to catch myself from touching the canvas it looked that real.

I had taken some pictures a few years back of a robin’s nest that was constructed on the railing of our deck. It allowed me some great photos. I decided I would try again to paint a bird’s nest. This one is small. 4″x4″. I am pleased. It does get better to paint it more than once. That doesn’t mean it is easier. New Life

Horse and Carriage

I have not been around a lot of horses. I can’t tell if one is friendly or not. Does it want to be ridden or does it just want to be left alone. This one seemed to enjoy it’s work and so did the driver.

The horse didn’t seem to mind me kneeling down to take a few pictures. It really was a beautiful animal. I was thinking of painting it from a different perspective.

It was fun to paint this and that’s what painting should be all about.
