Mixed media original painting, 24" x 36"
In the artist's own words:
"This started life as an acrylic painting. Americana chickens are the most beautiful, rich shades of burnt sienna through to orange, and they really do have blue feet! I added interest to this piece with collage, through paper, even torn cards. I've been lucky to find some fabulous patterned papers recently and the Stars and Stripes in the background just shouted to be heard. I wanted this to be more than a study of 'brown chickens'. After all, brown is a wonderful part of Mother Nature's palette, isn't it ? (As long as you don't call it brown). It encompasses everything from smooth dark chocolaty-ness (made-up word), right through to bronze, with or without the shimmer, de-licious!
I loved the physical conversation of these 3 girls, looking and listening, but not really believing because of their beautiful big blue feet."
