Chickens have such a singular body shape. Like a Zeppelin. Streamlined, yet entirely not. The above hen is a Sapphire Gem. I think. See her fluffy feet? I expect her to make chocolate-brown eggs, and have my fingers crossed. None yet, but she’s only four months old. Our chickens are mostly Aracunas, and Americunas.

I don’t think so.” But again, I was half-way done, so I just kept going. AndContinue reading “painting: boer goat (09/23/18)”

Finding time to paint in the spare hours is about all I can accomplish. I’m glad I’m able to do it, too. DidContinue reading “painting: Boer goat (09/09/18)”
