The Chicken Ranch in Texas



ART.  The chickens are done, at least this first painting of chickens is done. Meet Hercules in pursuit of his favorite hen(s). Isn't that just the way of things? The Chicken Ranch was painted with a palette knife on 8x10 inch hardboard/masonite. The oil paint is thick and textured. Another chicken painting will come. I don't know how soon or how late. 

Thanks, Mollie Jones, for use of your chickens as inspiration for this painting. Thank you, Gwen Aldridge, for purchasing the painting!

Caribbean Flash


"Caribbean Flash" 
14x11 inch oil on canvas
© V. Bridges Hoyt 2009
Available at Spring Cottage Gallery

Quoted from a draft post dated 2009:
I thought I would paint a rose, but the book I am currently reading (Life, Paint and Passion) has me thinking subliminally, "What would I paint if I were not afraid to be free?" That is one of the questions asked by authors Cassou and Cubley, questions designed to find the passion deep in an artist's soul. At the end of this day I still had not rendered accurately the rose image in my mind. The author's question came back to me. I tossed the rose image aside and started to paint freely and passionately without a vision. My end result was "Caribbean Flash" in colors of the Caribbean Sea.

Not Monet

Another painting that I want to finish was in this draft post from 2008. It does contain a dog (which you do not yet see), but currently my focus is on the water lilies. This is a 24 x 20 inch painting that I want to complete. 

Work-in-Progress (for a long time)
