Yearning Chicken Love


sold

I went around and around with the composition for this. I started out with lots and lots of cracked eggs and just the yellow chicken, but somehow couldn't get around the morbidity of that combination. Then I noticed the yellow chicken making googly eyes at the blue rooster, so in the end I let their love shine!

After almost a month apart, my husband and I escaped for the weekend, which is why I haven't posted. We'll be home later today.

You went round and round and landed on perfection!

Hope you had a wonderful reunion with your hubby!

That's a brilliant yellow chicken, sure can't blame her for eying the athletic and handsome guy. He's probably a rock star in blue rooster world. :)
