bup BUP by Nambroth bup BUP by Nambroth
I painted this as a gift for my husband's birthday.

We fish at this pond, and one day while fishing he told me he imagined his favorite pet chicken, Coho the Salmon Faverolles, gigantic and stepping over the hills looking for him. She says "bup bup... bup BUP?" a lot. The image made us laugh and became a reoccurring joke. So, I painted the scene for him, complete with her spacey vacant expression.

She is a very cuddly chicken and likes to bury her head in our armpits. I suspect she is just looking for a gigantic armpit to snuggle into. If you want to read more about Coho, you can visit this little page: [link]

The white pole is an osprey nest platform (this is an actual location we go to).

Corel painter, acrylic brush (which I am falling more in love with every day).

God, I love the way you painted the feathers especially. Lovely working in the blues into her cream feathers as well.

 How on Earth can the spectacle of a Godzilla-sized chicken tickle my funny bone so consistently?

 I can only attribute that to your excellent artwork (and my own perverse sense of humour!).;) (Wink)

Coho reminds me of my own hen Clover in her way, but also of Hazel...  None the less, I am impressed yet again, and the shading is quite well-done.
