Larry and His Girls


Image size 10" x 12"

Framed size 20" x 22"

Larry is guarding his girls, and he means business. If you get too close, he'll fly at you, talons outstretched...and Larry is LARGE.


I love doing paintings of my white chickens. BTW, these are Leghorns, and they are one of the hardiest breeds, as well as being first rate layers. The contrast of cool to warm here intrigued me, and I tried to paint it simply. There was a dead mouse in the photo, which Larry obviously murdered...I decided to leave that out.
