Not quite chicken paintings

Still painting.... Here are some recent paintings, done one day apart.  I have been working on more and more commissions, larger paintings and other work. 

 The models were provided by our chickens, including Dorkings, Rhode Island Reds, Leghorns and Golden Comets. We do have one Ameraucana hen but she has started laying yet. (At least not where we can find her blue green eggs.)

Please click on the image to see the larger/uncropped painting  (More egg paintings coming soon. These two have been sold)

290 White Pony Adieu

One of the projects I am working on right now is a painting of a girl and her pony. The pony will be leaving at the end of this month, so we went out on a soft autumn afternoon to take photos of them at the barn and out on trails, riding through the woods and across a stream on a wooden bridge. This first painting is an idea, I don't know if we will go farther with this or another image.

286 Jersey on the Lawn

We came across this young Jersey cow along with three others not far from our studio. They were busy keeping the grass cut on the front lawn of an old homestead. We got out to take photos (only had phones, not the real cameras), the owner walked up and we got to talking. He was getting ready to take them to a back field for Autumn and Winter but was running a bit late that afternoon. Ten minutes later and they would have been gone from view of the road and remained unknown to us. He told us that he had been planning to buy one of the four from a retiring farmer nearby, but he had ended up in the hospital before completing the deal. While there, his wife completed the purchase. Unsure of exactly which cow he wanted, she bought all four. 
This small painting is the first of the Jersey paintings, one of which will end up as a 30" x 40" or a 36" x 48" painting.

283 Old John Deere

No, it's not a giant mechanized frog from the Fifties. Nor is it proof that aliens have been among us. I found this old John Deere tractor in a shed.  I was down in South Carolina, trying to paint on a day that wasn't too hot or rainy. While walking the farm, looking for the right view to capture all the important elements for the farm painting, I found it. This machine has character. Like a time worn face that show the years of life and love, it tells of years in the fields.  I'm hooked. In fact the next painting will be another old tractor.

282 Foothills Farm

We passed this farm near Marion, NC and had to turn back and stop. Hay had just been cut and was being raked into windrows. We both thought, "I hope it doesn't rain before the get it up." 
I can't resist a red barn with sun shining on a tin roof, so here it is.

281 Sunday Afternoon at Devon

The Devon Horse show has always been one of the special shows for me. Held in a historic showgrounds with a variety of disciplines, Hunter/Jumper, Carriages and Coaches, Hackneys and Saddlebreds it offers an abundance of images for painting. Here is a small impressionistic look at one of the Sunday Afternoon carriages. Did I mention that Devon is near Philadelphia, home of the cheesesteak, which has to join beer as one of Ben Franklin's reasons that we know God loves us.
But the painting - trying to capture that feeling of a sunny Sunday afternoon in May. With horses and carriages, red barns with blue trim and all those elements just a joy to paint.

272 Southern Summer

Carolina Summer, hot, humid, somewhere above the haze is a blue sky and a burning sun. But find a spot in the shade, under a tree or on the porch, maybe a breeze and a glasses of tea. But that's August and it's still only June, so enjoy.

266 266a 270 Painting from Life including a corgi

I am combining a couple of paintings in the one post. All of these 4 x 6 oils were painted from life. The first painting is of our male corgi, Throop.  He came into the studio where I was putting the finishing touches on a painting and decided to sleep. It seems that whenever you are painting a candid subject, (where no is posing but you are capturing what is happening around you) your subject always waits until you are at the decisive point of the painting and then changes position or just leaves. Throop did just that, got up moved to another part of the studio. After I finished painting, he came back and laid down in the original spot and back to sleep.

This happens with just about every subject. From people sitting at a cafe table for two hours and then suddenly get up and leave to cows in a field who will all move out of the sunlight to the shade at one time.

Here is Throop.

Sleeping Corgi

This next painting was started at an outdoor cafe where I had set up and was painting the scenes around me. As mentioned above, this group suddenly got up and left. I didn't see where I could go with what I had so the panel was wiped clean for another paintng.



The second painting on the panel was of four young women getting together for coffee. I began painting as soon as they sat down and quickly got the basic shapes. Then the shadows and highlights and this painting was done. They didn't leave but constantly changed positions and yes, the girl with the sunglasses was that tall.

265 Sleeping Dogs Lie 2`

I was painting outdoors on a beautiful Sunday afternoon not long ago. I was literally a couple of feet away from a sidewalk cafe, a coffee shop and bakery. Looking around for a suitable subject, I saw this pretty young lady passed out under a table. Still, you have to paint quickly and with concentration. You never know when you model will get up and move, then it's all over. Luckily, I was given plenty of time.

264 Dressage Show - Gray

"Painting from Life"  The term "painting from life" is a description for a painting done while looking at a live model as opposed to a sketch of photograph. When painting animals this often means painting from an animal in motion. (Sleeping dogs and cats are one exception.)
So setting up the easel at a dressage show, I quickly learned that to paint horses from life, I should paint at the warm up ring. Rather than going through their program and then leaving the ring, in the warm-up, there is a lot of repetition. To paint this gray, I would look, then paint while the  horse and rider came back into the same position again. Look again, paint again.  Always knowing that in an instant, the horse and rider would leave and my model would be gone. Still, it is a very good exercise in concentration, observation and painting. Starting by capturing the movement of the horse and then its form and finally suggesting details. Unfortunately, working too intensely to make a note of the rider's number...

This painting is a 5 x 7, a bit larger than most of the others in this blog.
