I received a photo of this old painting today. True love, youth, and freedom. This painting has several siblings out there somewhere - part of a series I once did that I liked to refer to as "they came from the jungle to be our friends". The chicken, like the dog, is descended from wild ancestors who chose to live with us, giving us wondrous gifts in exchange for our food scraps and a sense of security.
