49, Her Pet Chicken

8x10 oil/panel

Hmmm... sometimes things that seem like they should be straightforward and easy... arent!  And it's usually a problem of seeing the big shapes and values... I had some trouble with this one, and it's certainly not "perfect" now, but I reached my time limit (and then some) so I let it stay as it is....
Maybe not a perfect painting, but who doesn't like a little child holding her pet chicken? (well, perhaps the chicken isn't thrilled - it's hard to tell with them).

By the way, you can always click on the image and it will bring up a much larger version.  You'll see lots of thick paint on this one... my solution for being frustrated and needing to just get it done!

Happy day, everybody!
