That is just to protect my art from internet pirates who roam the internet seas. AAARGH!
Around Easter time, we started getting farm fresh eggs from a friend at church who had some Araucana hens and a few other chicken breeds. I was delighted to get natural, colorful eggs of various sizes and colors. The problem was that I hated to break the shells of the aqua eggs because they were so pretty. I saved some of the eggs and decided to do a drawing of them. My sister raises sheep and gave me some wool skins, so I laid the eggs on the wool and later named it Soft Eggs because of the soft wool bed they are on. The color of the eggs are it's natural color for that breed.
I didn’t really expect to find very many scriptures on chickens in the Bible, but, this is what I “gathered”.
... Jesus answered him, Will you lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto you, The cock shall not crow, till you have denied me three times. John 13:38
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Matthew 23:37
Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 63:7
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. Malachi 4:2
