Spring Hens from Hawaii


This is my submission for the Chicken Challenge on the Daily Paintworks site- it was fun and I tried out my new "interactive " acrylics.
Painting this reminded me of a time when my daughter Markie was about 11- our next door neighbors had hatched  baby chicks and she fell in love with one she named Mack.
She was never an early riser, but for about a week she would wake up early , wolf down her breakfast , and dash over to visit her friend Mack before the bus came.
I felt like she had become Fern in Charlottes Web that spring. I love how painting brings back these sweet memories.
