The Traveling Chicken Comes to Michigan

"The Traveling Chicken," 16" x 20", acrylics on panel, $199 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.

The Traveling Chicken has been on the road traveling the world since 2012, visiting artists' studios and sitting for paintings. She arrived in the thumb of Michigan with a couple of her friends last week, and they have been busy auditioning different flowers, searching for the perfect co-star in her painting.

They were partial to the sunflowers, so I obliged.

Thanks for following along with my artwork,

The traveling Chicken is in St-Lazare!

Oil on canvas

Available here: 

So where is St-Lazare?  A question even some people living 30 minutes away from us wonder.  It's a little town west of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
We have horses and crazy big trees.  It's the country only steps from Montreal.

So TC arrived with his friends and I was sooooooo honoured to be hosting him for the week!
As soon as they arrived they took this selfie

I had to finish a commission before I could paint him so he had to be very patient… and me too because I had so many ideas for her!

While she waited he made friends with my favourite knickknack, the Tiffany blue unicorn.

Then it was time to try some of the painting poses I had imagined for her.  Here's one example of how things look better in my imagination then in reality.  This happens A LOT! 

So I decided to paint him in a pair of jeans because painting jeans make me so happy.  I also thought her beautiful yellow colour would pop out in contrast to the blue.
Here she is making sure I get the shade just right.  She was very scared I was going to make her look like a turkey.

It's now time to go visit the next artist!  I will never forget you TC xxx

Traveling Chicken and friends visits Richfield, OH

My name is Cheri Homaee and TC and her friends came to Ohio at a bad time.  Seventeen year Cicada's and Heat...Ugh,  so we had a lot of fun inside.  She visited with some friends of mine on the Dayne(my son) shelf.  The Dayne shelf are small polymers items that my son made when he was younger, so she and her friends hung out a lot with them.  All kinds of conversations going on into the nite,I could hear them talking late into the night.

Everyone one wanted to get into the act in the photos..  All enjoyed talking and hanging out.  TC and friends  made a lot of new friends, some were too  shy and didn't want their photos taken.

So King Frog and TC did a selfie and  wanted me to do their portrait to remember her by, first selfie the the rooster did a photo bomb, but they took the selfie over when he wasn't looking.  So much fun!
