Farm animals

I recently completed some paintings of some of our farm animals, all in acrylic on canvas.  This is our Shetland pony, Tuxedo, who is adorable but whose personality is actually kind of wicked.  I got him for the kids to ride, but he gets a gleam in his eye and immediately tries to buck them off whenever we try that nonsense.
This is one of our hens, a Black Australorpe named Barbara.  Her feathers are amazing, reflecting purple and green in the sunlight.
And this is Gertie, a barred rock hen who lived in our basement for a while getting special care for an injured foot.  I have printed giclee prints of this painting, available at the Farmers' Market or if you contact me.
