I like chickens, and I keep a flock of egg-layers in my backyard behind my studio. They figure prominently in many of my paintings and illustrations. One of my favorite chicken illustrations is featured on my canvas tote bags. Get a chicken tote!
Some links for backyard chicken fans:

Had fun visiting your mini-studio, Alex! A lot of charming work comes out of there. Especially like the chicken tote bags and animal portraits tied up in ribbons!

Ah ha ha ha!! OMG I love the story of Ellie and Gwendolin the pigs! Their faces are so charming, so alive. You've really captured animal souls in your artwork. I will try to hit the Jamestown Farmers Market next week. I do hope you haven't sold them yet.
Really, just wonderful paintings and a delightful story to go with them.

Thank you Alan!
If Gwennie & Ellie are gone I have other animals for you to meet... I am enjoying the way these personalities emerge & take over their portraits. Please do come to the Farmers Market and introduce yourself!

It was great meeting you (@ Brown Derm) with paint on your hands; the tell tale sign of an artist at work! I love all of your creations posted here. There is diversity of style and medium with whimsy and realism! I especially love the tale of the Book plate! I have many such books that need to be read, or just napped upon.
Thanks for your artistic gifts! They enhance the world around us.

I can see the personalities in the eyes. Brothers can be so different.
