Because If you change your mind..I could send you one of mine.. *wink*

Oh, I'm so glad you're doing "The Hen and the Golden Eggs"!
I had already started my lion when I saw the deluge of them entered in the show and the image was so stuck in my mind I HAD to paint it. If I could have, I probably would have entered one of each!
I can't wait to see the finished product!!!

At least it wasn't a rose you had to do...

"There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted."
--HENRI MATISSE

LOL :-) Sorry, your post just made me think of that quote.

That looks great! Will you be making prints of this one? My mom loves chickens and she would love to get a print.

Her eyes are awesome. I think you already know that eyes and hair are your specialty. And skin. And lighting. And composition. And texture. Okay well still, eyes are the first thing I see in this painting. They draw me in.

Yes ma'am! I just scanned her in =)

I typically use fluid acrylics (the kind in the little bottles). They take a while to dry, which is why I use the hairdryer!!!

Or maybe you just have the ability to paint faster than I can, LOL! There is NO WAY I can squeeze out a painting in a DAY and have it look as good as you do! You amaze me! ;)
