Miss Peck with Chicks

 
"Miss Peck with Chicks"
8" x 10" acrylic on gessoed masonite

Yesterday I showed you these same three chicks at the half-grown stage.  Stands to reason that I would now show you these cuties about a week old.  Miss Peck made the greatest mother.. nothing, and I do mean NOTHING ! ... could come close to those chicks without being confronted.  We have eight cats and every one of them would cross the yard to avoid getting anywhere near her baby bits of fluff.  As a result, all of her chicks grew to adulthood and are now supplying us with bug control, eggs and entertainment.

You captured Miss Peck's strength and watchful eye. I love the texture you used to highlight these fabulous fowls.
