I began last night, gathering up images of the chickens I have already painted so that I can make the much-asked-for chicken calendar for 2016.
I have eight or nine (depending whether I end up combining the two Noble Hens, #4 and 5 in the squares above, into a diptych, which I may), so I need three or four more.
Actually I have many more chickens than that, but for the calendar I'm only using the ones I've done in mixed media on paper.
For those of you who might be asking, "But what about the horses?", fear not. The 2016 horse calendar is also in its early design stages, but because I already did one of those last year, I actually have fewer horses than I have chickens.
If you feel this is unacceptable, send me horse photos. :-D
