"Mama Hen" by Beth Bathe

"Mama Hen", 26/30, 8" x 8", oil on panel
I'm on a roll with the "poultry series". I have even been called the "chicken lady". I had a request to do a hen and chicks and couldn't resist these cuties. I spent a lot of time on the details of the feathers. I usually paint somewhat looser, but I think all the detail works in this instance.

  1. This is a sweet piece. Keep on with the chickens. They seem to be ever popular.
