I was reading blogs one day
and checking out various interesting links
and then I clicked on "Vintage Gal"'s Blog
and she has some interesting posts and photos
She also is lucky to have some baby chicks at her place now
but really this post of mine is all about a pretty black and white hen
I spotted right there in Marianne's blog's header.
I just LOVE that photo !
The STRIKING black and white hen
The old fashioned kitchen
I want that kitchen
I want that apron
I want the friend who comes over in her hat and coat and eats my baked goods
that may be going too far
I wanted to paint it
and put it up in my kitchen
( I'm thinking about re-doing my kitchen someday)
I am always on the look out for new, interesting ideas for decor.
I love the cozy laid back cottage feel
that chicks bring to the kitchen.
and I do love fresh eggs...
but I don't think I will ever have my own brood of chicks
here in Loveland Ohio
but it would be fun (sort of)
If it weren't so much work.
I think Marianne is so nice to let me paint her hen
in my own watercoloring freestyle
remember... I'm just a beginner at this watercoloring stuff
I do enjoy it.
So here is my way of doing a watercolor of her header hen
She says it is called a
How cute is that name
|Gert the hen in pencil|
|My paint on a paper plate|
tubes of paint that I used
to paint the "Gert"
|Gert is a very good poser|
|so here she is|
A Beauty of a hen
|Maybe this will be Gerts boyfriend|
Is this a male ?
Looks like it to me
I feel like a poultry expert now
But I very well could be wrong about this...
