With my love for Pre-Renaissance religious art feed by my recent trip to the LACMA and The Getty which both featured 100's of delicious icons, altar pieces, and illuminated manuscripts, you know that the inevitable result would be similar pieces. Of course, most of my pieces feature chickens. I'm not trying to be sacrilegious or anything. I just really like painting chickens. 

Here's my nod to the venerable subject matter of the Madonna and Child with a chicken lovers twist, "Mother and Child" watercolor and gold leaf, 12" X 12". This is part of the Celestial Chicken series.
