Ginny Page Denmark Painting

Artwork title : Hope

This is a little portrait painting of my rescue silkie chick who was attacked by a predator and left with a broken leg and unable to move. I nurtured her for 3 weeks as a 2 week old baby hoping she would survive . I put a lolly pop splint on her leg and she lived down my bra to keep warm and safe away from the rest of the flock for 24 hours a day!

She is now strong and walking again and ended up a beautiful rooster now fathering its own baby chick. It gives me immese joy to be able to help other living beings in need and to feel that i made just  a small difference in this crazy world !

Oil on patinated copper leaf on panel, 20 x 20 cm
