Rhode Island Reds-sold


Oil on canvas panel, 6" x 8"
While scrolling through some photos that I took a while ago, I came across these Rhode Island Reds and decided immediately I wanted to do a painting of them. I don't know much about chickens but I understand they have personalities (or would that be chickenalities?) and can actually make good pets.

kathy...three rosters overlooking the barnyard...on the prowl...pretty ordinary??...until one notices the "weber" element..(there is always a "weber" element of at least one defining detail)...here one roster is lifting his right leg in a cocky manner which is meant to impress..it is a distinguishing gesture all rosters make...kathy i am sure if a speck of dust floated in just one particular way...you would notice it...one views your work to see what they have missed in hopes of not missing it again

Jan, it's so nice having a friend who thinks your stupid jokes are as funny as you do! Brian- what can I say- keep those wonderful critiques coming. And Ed- I'm SO glad you like the book (and isn't the USPS awesome-RI to CA in a couple of days...)
