I have never owned chickens, but I predict that at some point, they will become an addition to my life. I have painted countless chickens as an artist (how did this happen?) and I always seem to gravitate back to these interesting birds as subject. They all have such character and the friends I know who do keep chickens simply adore them... for their eggs and their companionship believe it or not. On another note, the titles for today's painting came to me as I was looking at the picture I took of the painting this morning. I always inspect my images closely to make sure that the detail is intact and the colors are correct. As I was looking at the face of this one, the artist Rembrandt popped in my head. I think it is partially the style and brushwork that I am developing.... but I also think I might be following the tradition of TMNT and naming my animals after famous artists... (yes I have kids and yes, one of them was obsessed with the Turtles!) I won't go into detail here, but if you don't know who the TMNT are, and if you want to find out more about this series of unlikely super heros, click here... :)
So this is my super hero chicken for the day, "Rembrandt". I can picture this guy strutting his stuff in a pretty little kitchen, but suspect he would hang nicely most anywhere....
You can purchase Rembrandt (at 20% off my usual prices) at my DPW site.
