Cluck, Cluck Chicken Painting

I painted a chicken.
Why a chicken you ask? Why not?
Paint a Rustic Farmhouse Chicken Sign

I was asked by our high school Pro-Start team (they are chefs in training) to donate something for an auction to help them get to Nationals in Washington DC.. A chicken seemed appropriate for chefs.

I joined together three pieces of barnwood to make the sign blank-- it ended up being about 28" x 18" in size. I painted a little yellow and turquoise and then grey for the background, using wood scraps as my brushes and leaving some of the wood exposed.

I then sketched out a basic chicken and shape and painted it, again using wood scraps. I use little small slivers of wood to paint the small details like the legs and comb. I finish the painting with a light sanding and stain and a clear coat.

It is a fun, rustic, farmhouse sign and there was a bitty bidding war over it.


  1. That is beautiful, Becky! Truly - it is amazing how you took plain pieces of barn wood - and turned into a work of art! What an amazing gift!

    I'm sure whomever won it in the auction - loves it very much! :)

    Blessings! Net

  2. Wonderful, Becky! I can see why there was a bidding war!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
