8x8 oil on canvas panel

This is #3 in my challenge series of 50 pets this summer. You might be wondering what happened to #'s 1 and's quite simple, they ended up in a most disgusting way and will have to be re-painted at a later date. Michelle Muse is a family (not mine) chicken and you'll soon see another painting of her very soon.

The summer is fading quickly. We have decided to build a little art studio and the last several weeks have been busy with decision making, so as decisions are made, I'm still managing to paint each day; I'll post photos soon. Thanks for looking at my blog, hope you are having a great summer, too. Take care!

I love hens and rooster in general. Lovely painting Angela!

Beautiful feathers and I'm intrigued by what constitutes "disgusting!" LOL This is a lovely little chicken and I am sure her family will love this. So happy you are getting a studio too! Can't wait to see pics!

Great job on this hen. Love all things poultry.
I know what you mean about disgusting. I am working on a human commission and must have painted the face twenty times or more. Ugh!
Excited for your new studio!

She's beautiful, as always you did a great job. Sorry you are having trouble with some of your painting, but the distraction of a studio is probably well worth it. Hugs :)

Lovely painting Angela. Great color and texture. Looking forward to more of your summer work.

I love the attitude and fluffiness of this fine bird. Well done, Angela.
