Chicken and Fruit Topiary
I have long been inspired by Rosemary West as well as my wonderful friend, Diane Knott. They both have distinctive techniques in their painting styles that I so admire and strive for. Rosemary's tole painting is flawless and I love her choice of color, patterning and banding. Diane is an artist extraordinaire... the warmth of her personality shines through in her work. Each piece is a treasure and I especially love those with fruit and berries. So, that being said, I decided to do a piece in which I would try to incorporate all these qualities. Here it is, a topiary painted with fruit and a chicken finial on top!
