Acrylic on Birch Panel
"I have created a series of 9 chicken portraits. Once I started to paint chickens I was surprised to find that many of my friends now kept chickens in their back yards in the city. They are no longer restricted to rural settings." Painting on birch for the first time was quite a challenge as I wanted to paint them with loose brush strokes while at the same time maintaining the bare timber as the background.
