The Chicken Challenge

White hen

I painted this lovely white hen as part of a Daily PaintWorks challenge a while back and just realized I never actually submitted it!  Well, here it is.  I wish I could tell you something about this chicken, but I've never met her–just grabbed the photo and started painting.  I do love painting chickens, particularly their faces–people will say that chickens don't actually have expressions, but I think you get quite a sense of a chicken's personality from their faces.  This one seems to know that she's quite beautiful. 

Actually, I would say that most chickens have quite a high opinion of themselves.  It's one of the things I like about them.

You know the drill–
