One of the great things about being an artist is that we get to - [we are encouraged to!] - change reality so we get a better painting. I love doing the same scene in different ways.
You saw the first version of this in the previous post. I decided to put a redbud in behind the shed because redbuds are *everywhere* out here. They mean spring is in full swing.
A little secret about my chickens. I come from a family with a lot of girls. 6 chickens is me, my sisters and my mom. 5 chickens is me and my sisters. 3 chickens is me and my daughters. Whenever you see chickens in my artwork, you know I've put my family in there.
