Thank you John. The hens were, in fact, composed from various photos and lots of imagination, as I couldn't get a decent picture of Dennis and his ladies all together.

I have to tell you how much I love that chooky on the left walking away from us! I was watching my girls scratching up my garden yesterday and admiring their fine figures before yelling at them to "GET OFF THE GARDEN"! They have 40 acres to scratch around in, so why do they insist on stomping around on my meagre few flowery things!!! LOL!

Artist Statement
for Jennifer Kimpton
Jennifer KimptonI started taking art classes when I retired at the end of 2008. I sketched a bit as a child but had never tried painting. I'd like to become confident with both watercolours and oils, and then maybe try pastels. I'd like to develop a more impressionistic style, but it is eluding me at the moment. Although I write with my right hand, I paint and draw with both hands - which can be quite useful at times.

As you can probably tell from the above (and other pictures of mine) I really struggle with backgrounds. Any tips or advice in this aspect would be greatly...
