Flowers (and chickens), by Elaine (jaguarish)

One day when I visited my friend's house, she turned out to be not at home, but these chickens were wandering happily through her garden.  Bemused, I took several photos and this painting is based on one of the photos.  I later found out that they belong to a neighbour and have made the entire neighbourhood their domain.  I did this painting as a fun warm-up trying to get myself in the mood to tackle another (intimidating) "selfie" portrait...  I include the chicken photo below in case you feel like doing a version!


  1. very impressionistic feeling, glad you left out the concrete or path that is there,

  2. Love your painting. It looks as though the chicken is admiring the flowers :-)

  3. Ooh, that's really cool, I love both the photo and especially your painting! Happy PPF!

  4. Gotta love chickens - you have captured them so beautifully!
    Happy PPF :)
    no. 17

  5. I love your chicken painting. It has a bright cheery feel to it and it made me happy to look at it.

  6. You have captured the chickens so good and real.

  7. Thanks, everyone! Wow I guess everyone loves chickens... ha ha... they seem to have so much personality!
