Chicken Little - SOLD

Previously, I've spoken about white being my nemesis.  So, when I saw the Daily Paintworks challenge for this week, I felt exactly like Chicken Little.  I mean, come on...white?  And a chicken?  The sky is falling.  The sky is falling!  But you know what?  It was so fun to paint!  I think the black gesso was the key.  I love black gesso! 

Aren't you loving the weekly challenges?  I know.  Me, too! 

Oh, and I wanted to mention the film "Vermeer: Light, Love and Silence" to you.  If you're a fan of his work or even if you're not, I think you will enjoy it.  It's wonderful. 

Have a great evening!

I think your chicken is adorable. I got a kick out of the humor in your post. And, yes, I am enjoying the challenges at Daily Paintworks too, although I need to enter more often. Where does one find the film on Vermeer?

Thank you both for your very nice comments! M.D., I saw the Vermeer movie on Ovation, and it is available through Amazon, etc. It is not a new film but still very interesting.
