Apparently, I couldn't stop with Miss Chicken and the toys... (See previous post.)
It snowed quite a bit while The Traveling Chicken was in town. For inspiration, my husband suggested that I take her out in the snow. I was resistant because I simply did not want to paint snow. (Hence the indoor play in the previous painting.)
Well, the day I sent her off to Florida, the snow was so beautiful that I felt I should at least try the chick in the snow.
It felt SO good to be outside on a quiet snowy morning. After taking quite a few pictures, I perched the chicken on a hydrangea bush (I believe it's a chantilly hydrangea for those who are curious) next to a few dried blooms that have hung on all winter... Gorgeous.
And, I got to paint Miss Chicken with some flowers. :)
Yes, it's a bit kooky to paint a ceramic chicken in the snow, but there is exquisite beauty in all seasons - chicken or no chicken, I'm grateful I didn't miss it!

The chicken has arrived in sunny Florida at Pamela Sweet's studio.
