Imposter in the Chicken Coop

We went out to "the farm" last weekend to visit with my husband's father, affectionately known as Opa to all in the family. I forgot my camera and had to borrow one to take some photos of this wonderful old barn with the chickens all around. I got some great shots of the chickens, but imagine my surprise when this fellow showed up at the door!

I had a flashback to an old The Far Side cartoon that I just love (which I cannot find online surprisingly)... but maybe some of you will remember if I just say:

"...and now Edgar's gone, something's going on around here"

I'll be painting chickens, barns and a rhea someday soon I suspect.

I love this picture!! It actually looks like a painting, I can't wait to see your paintings of the chickens and such.

I was thinking the same thing about it looking like a painting already.

This picture is amazing..and you are also a brilliant artist. Some of your paintings are very impressive..painted like a true artist.. I notice that in your blog roll you had put a link to syafisafiya-house blog, but the url address is wrong. I think you should change it to, in there you will also find the link to syafisafiya blog where the kids update their daily activities in Brisbane. Thank U
