These are my feathered babies!
My favorite chicken is the Araucana with the coppery feathers. Her name is Penny because she isn't entirely made of copper but still very honest. The white one with the awesome stretch and squish is Sam. The brown turkey is named King George because he was a tyrant to another beloved but departed turkey named Benjamin Franklin. The Wyandottes at the top have no names but the rooster is very pushy and tends to boss around the bigger chickens.

I recently read a novel about two Jewish children that ran into the woods of Eastern Poland to avoid the Nazis. They used fake names and became real life Hansel and Gretel. I did a quick painting of what that forest might have looked like in the summer.

New painting! I found this old picture of Sherriff Pat Garrett. He's the man that shot Billy the Kid, right through the heart and in the dark no less. The original taker of the shot in the dark. Later he became a Captain of the Texas Rangers and bffs with Teddy Roosevelt. Then, he squandered all his money and was shot by a cattle rustler in a saloon.
