Better Than A Puppet Show

Mrs. Bao's four sons could not find anyone to take them to the puppet show about to start in the village square. Instead they fed their puffed rice snacks, carefully saved for the puppet show, to Uncle Tu's wandering hen and chicks. The afternoon passed quickly.


  1. This is maybe my favorite picture. I love the composition and the color and the poses and the expressions..everything about it.

  2. Thanks. I did this for my brother who lives in Shanghai and has four boys. I was at their home one weekend painting in their back yard. Initially the boys would hover about me watching (usually messing in my paints) but then this hen and her chicks wandered into thier garden and, well, that's when I got the idea....
