Spring Chick, Original Oil Painting, Animal Portrait

The season for new beginnings is almost here. Baby chicks have always been a symbol of birth and new life, and painting this one was a new challenge for me. She was born on a 5x7 inch Raymar Canvas Panel, created with oil paint, and can be purchased for the Easter holiday by visiting my online gallery, Small Impressions. For $40.00 plus $6.50 for shipping to US addresses, she will move from my home to yours. She will easily fit into a standard size frame or might be displayed on a small table top easel though she is sold unframed and purchase does not include an easel.

Nancy: This is as good an example as I've seen of the scumbling technique. You have achieved a wonderful effect with such thin paint.

Yes, definitely scrumbled--creating those fluffy little feathers was a real challenge. Glad you think it turned out well!
