When the Queen Speaks…

Pomegranate, I 6"x6" Oil on Linen

Queen Elizabeth's Hips Oil on Linen 4"x6"

  1. And very happy holidays to YOU as WELL! Lovin' the paintings Carolina *smiles*

  2. Hi Carolina Elizabeth :)

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
