"Bess and Dolley"--by Amy Stewart--SOLD

It must be chicken week on the blog! Here's another painting of my hens, Dolley and Bess. I don't know if you've ever tried to get a chicken to post for a picture, but it's very hard to do. I can get them to sit still by putting out some chicken scratch for them to eat, but then the question is how to make an interesting image out of that. I thought they were very sweet with their heads together like this.

This is 6 x 6 inch oil on board. Click here to bid. You can have a look at my other paintings available on eBay here.

Thanks and enjoy the holidays!


  1. Aww! Just what I needed - a cute chicken picture to perk up my day. They are adorable. I love the foot positioning.

  2. Nicely composed, Amy, and lovely brushwork!
