"Chick #8" by Astrid Paustian

Oil on Gessobord., 5" x 5", $110.-
I love chicks and birds in general. Nothing says Spring more than chicks and baby birds. They are beautiful and full of personality, even when they are just 2 days old, like this little one, when I took the photo. Our friends Michelle and Tim had just gotten an order of 30 chicks in the mail to start their little family farm, and I was happy to be invited to photograph them.

A recent oil painting that is now hanging at the Art Center of Estes Park.Click here to visit the Art Center web site.
I am currently working on a larger, 30" x 30" version of this painting, after finishing a 36" x 36" hibiscus painting for a client( not yet photographed).
I continue to enjoy painting tropical flowers during this long, cold and windy Colorado winter, happily remembering our vacation on Kauai last April, where the reference photos were taken.
