Painting again

Its been so long since I picked up a brush...and this big white surface has been beckoning me for weeks, to paint a mural. Its on the chicken house and will be portraits of my five hens as if the viewer is looking into the henhouse. I started by drawing each hen from photos, on separate pieces of paper and moving them about until they all fit into the background.


Then the design was transferred with carbon paper to the coop.









The dark floor will be mostly covered by painting in the straw litter at some point.


I might get this finished tomorrow or the next day if it doesnt rain. Gee, I look at these pictures and wonder if I'm at the "dotty old lady" stage of life.



Its a fun project, and it gives me something to think about besides worrying about the poor Iranians and their horrible government.

This will definitely be the best-looking chicken coop I've ever seen! Anyone with your talent could never be called a "dotty old lady":) Thanks for stopping by and visiting me!

You are so productive & creative. Love the idea. Your hens, painted & real, look lovely. As soon as we can we're coming over to see them. Dorain says Chicken Little looks cute.
