Got My Eye On You


Although I painted this is Germany, it is not actually a German chicken. I took the photo for this back in Oregon, right after I painted Mary's garden. I didn't mention it at the time, but while I painted, this lady above, and all her hen friends, were making tons of noises, some quite funny. We had chickens when I was growing up, so I was familiar with them, but they still made me laugh. Are they talking to each other? Are they commenting on each bug they find to eat? Or are they simply muttering to themselves?

Often wondered same myself! Think I will paint chickens this week now that you have inspired me.
