On the Farm, 10 x 10
Being a homeschool mom, my children and I take a lot of field trips. One of my favorite trips last year was to my friend's aunt's farm. We had been reading the Little House on the Prairie series and were learning about raising chickens. The aunt told us all about raising chickens, let the children feed them, and we all went home with delicious farm-fresh eggs. This chicken came strutting out of the barn and posed for me. It was a beautiful blessed day... and this painting reminds me of how much fun we had that day. That's one of the things I really enjoy about painting, I can express a feeling or a mood into each one.
