Flowers For Chickens

Flowers For Chickens
36 x 48
acrylic on canvas
This painting was inspired by a little drawing that my student gave me. He is 8 years old and is so very creative. I just loved this drawing, so I asked him if it would be okay to copy.
It was quite challenging. I truly wanted to maintain the whimsical innocence that he had in his drawing. It was a fun painting; I was actually sad when I finished it.
I feel a series coming on!
One of my favorite quotes by Picasso says it well.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
Pablo Picasso

You know I love this painting. I just wish that you lived close to my graddaughter could
give her lessons.
