an Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Heads or Tails?'
6 x 6

  Last Fall when we were plein air painting on the Blue
Hound Farm, the chickens were constant companions.
They would hide under a huge hemlock bush for
awhile, then come out to scratch around for a
snack.  I liked the way these three were foraging by
the fence-line - there must have been some yummy
bugs there!

I LOVE how their colouring makes them stand out amongst the foliage!

What a great painting, Claire. Love the way the red pops next to the green grasses.
