This little red is one of the dozen or so laying hens my wife's grandmother (Meme) is raising this year.They are very entertaining to watch. I spent about an hour in the pen photographing them. Obviously painting them from life would be a little harder than I was up for, especially for the first attempt. I think if I do a few more, I may be comfortable enough to try them from life, but for now, my photos will have to do. One of the things that really amazed me about the chickens was the wide variety of color they have. Some of them have these great red/yellow color schemes like this girl, while others are very dark with lots of blues and purples.

Thanks Clint. I think this is the one I'm entering next month in the Bold Brush contest. I was pretty happy with it.
