Truckin', 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

I'm discovering how delightful chickens are to paint! This is another hen from my reference photos at the goat farm. It's so much fun to watch chickens go about their business - every movement has a sense of purpose. I don't know where this gal was going, but she was "truckin'" like she had a very important date with someone or something. I like the light in this painting - I was trying to capture the feeling of the hot sunny day. It was near 100 degrees, maybe she was headed for some shade.
