Chickens are always fun for me to paint and they remain popular with collectors as fun paintings to buy. This one, and several others, were watching me closely one afternoon in Brantome, France. I had set up my easel beside their fenced in coop not far from the scene I was painting. I did not notice them or hear them for quite awhile as I worked. After a while, I turned around to see about six of them lined up beside the fence staring at me.
I hope ya'll are having a great week-end. We have an icy coating after today's wintry mix of sleet and frozen rain.
Last night my husband and I went to see the exhibition at the Nasher Museum at Duke University in Durham, "Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone sisters of Baltimore".
It is wonderful and amazing that Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone were able to amass one of the world's greatest art collections. The family fortune was made in NC textiles by their brother, Moses Cone.
Here is one of the many paintings in the show, and one of my favorites, by Matisse.
