bup BUP

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: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/nambroths-flock

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).
