Sentimental memories

As an artist, there are times that I choose my subject matter because it’s a dramatic scene, like a sunset or sunrise. Other times I choose my subject because it’s a particular face or lighting that strikes me as unique or stirring. Sometimes I just capture a singular image or an item that helps me remember fondly a visit or a moment in time that warms my heart and makes me smile.

This afternoon I’m wrapping up my weekend with a little time at the easel and remembering a lovely visit from a couple of years ago. It was a relaxing and enjoyable August evening. I hope you enjoy today’s painting, memories of that evening that I will entitle, Porky, in honor of this lovely little free range chicken and the dear folks who cared for her.

  1. Oh Kelly, how beautiful….love, love!!! Porky was the sweetest chicken. I still remember when he was sitting outside, how she would come and hop up and sit next to John so he could pet her! Love ❤️


    1. It was sweet to watch Porky follow you back to the hen house, too. It has been years, and I see by your past tense that Porky is no longer with you. Warm memories, now captured.
