Funky chicken

Sometimes the world of ordinary or extraordinary catches my eye and I just know it will turn into a painting.  This was one of those things.

I found this strange bird in the supermarket garden section of all places.  I presume its meant to be stuck in a big flower pot or in a bed of flowers, nodding on its spring in the breeze.  Its weird and funky and I had to have it so I could paint it.

This is completed in watercolour, 12 x 15 on 300lb Arches paper.  This piece is now available for sale on my Available Art page.

Looks like I've logged on properly now! Am new to reading blogs and there seem to be different varieties of blog... Just wanted to say that I stumbled across your blog while searching foe someone's artwork and have bookmarked it. A short while later I was unexpectedly offered some gallery space and only have a short while to get a body of work together - I find your blogs on time management particularly inspirational in convincing me that I can do it! Good luck with your Gyotaku project and everything else that you achieve with your excellent time management skills. Look forward to your latest posts continuing to pop into my inbox.

Thanks for the huge smile I had looking at that funny face. It's like a wonderful portrait of a weird and strangely haunting....? :)

Sometimes I just have to do something silly. And no, the background wasn't frozen. I wanted something loose and almost cloudy. Half on purpose, half accident. :)

Jennifer, welcome to my blog. I'm glad you're finding some useful information here.

My pleasure Tina. Its a strange bird sort of...something
