Happy Chicken

This Happy Chicken is a 13″x19″ mixed media painting on rag paper. This painting is flat and would need to be matted and framed by you. She is available HERE in my Etsy shop or you can contact me directly maria@mariapacewynters.com

Sometimes when I am making a reproductions of my paintings, I mess up. I use really lovely (and expensive) rag paper so the idea of it it going to waste is upsetting to me. I  am a paper lover, through and through. I always have been. I love working on paper, I love the smell of it, the feel of it, the different weights, the different tooth. So, when a mistake happens, I often use the ruined print as an under painting and making something new from it. This Happy Chicken above is an example of making lemons into Lemonade.  I am sure she would happily wave here tail feathers and exclaim “Waste not, want not” to all that would listen.
