Yearning Chicken Love

Well, the chickens have arrived in Oregon, just in time for them to enjoy the tail end of our glorious summer! I took them outside and pointed out the beautiful trees and flowers but these two just wanted to make googly eyes at each other. So, I did the only logical thing - I put them in my shadow box for privacy and let them arrange themselves. When I looked again they were just like this, the rooster seeming to serenade the hen. Honestly I'm so glad it wasn't something R rated!

Now I will pack them back up in the box ... a cozy box, where hopefully they will be good little chickens. They are on their way to India to visit Anita Badami. You can see my post on my blog, along with a bid link. Thank you for visiting me on your journey, chickens! Carol Marine

Lynne Fearman's Blog

Sierra Madre, CA. Wine and Jazz Festival Welcomes the Traveling Chicken!

Lynne Fearman here in Sierra Madre, CA. Well, the little troop of chicks arrived, (I’d like to say “safely” but not all was well) the larger Mexican chicken had his comb broken off on his way here. He’s fine now. I’m sure it had something to do with too many cocktails  on his flight here! He’s taking a trip back to his mamacita, Jill.

 Little yellow chick and her mom will be taking part in the Sierra Madre ‘Wine and Jazz Festival’ here, in Sierra Madre, when the painting she posed for will be auctioned off at the event to raise money for the City of Hope. She posed serenely, while the other chickens ran for their lives at the approach of the San Antonio Winery truck ( a major sponsor for this event ) at our local E. Waldo Ward Farm. It’s one of the only remaining working farms in the San Gabriel Valley. Her mom decided to take her chicks to the cool shade under the vines. We hope the locals will like her as much as we do! Have you ever tried to paint chickens when they are running in every direction? I’ll tell you now it ain’t easy!
  Now our little chicken is off to Carol Marine in Oregon. Carol, She’s on her way!

Beautiful Day in Wisconsin

The Traveling Chicken arrived safe and sound in Wisconsin on August 23rd. The trip from Kathleen Williford in Georgia was uneventful as far as I could tell which is good since she got here in one piece with her entourage.

She enjoyed many things in Wisconsin, including trying out some cheddar cheese which she said was the best one she had ever tried! She also went school shopping with us as the kids are finally going back to school next week and I'll be able to get back to painting regularly....

We really had fun with Traveling chicken and I couldn't help but paint her enjoying some sun on our patio on a very sunny and beautiful Sunday in Wisconsin!   I could tell she was mesmerized with the corn fields!

Thank you for visiting with us Traveling Chicken, we hope you have safe travels to Lynne Fearman in California and we can't wait to hear about your next adventures.

 Thank you Azra for starting this fun project and for everyone for including me! Happy Painting!
