Watercolor of the day ~ Hen of Lore

Hen of Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

I grew up near my cousins’ dairy farm and have many fond memories of time spent in the pastures, cow barn, and hen houses. So I took great pleasure in painting this cheery, nostalgic watercolor of a plump country hen on parade in her sunny barnyard.

Now I’ll confess that the model for this scene (which I encountered in Cooperstown, New York a few years ago) was not actually a hen of many colors. But I think this plumage suits her well. Don’t you?!
