Family Farm Study

… And this is the study for my commission piece of the family farm in Iowa. (See larger commission piece here.) Since I knew the chickens had to be part of this scene, I painted them a few times leading up to the final painting. I had several photos of our feathered friends, and this piece helped me determine their actual size and placement in relation to the magnificent barn.

What is it about a barn that is so comforting? This is lovely, Laurel.
