White Hen And The Sparrows

My sketch of White Hen and the birds on the chicken coop

While I was on my way to my studio this afternoon,  I saw White Hen outside the chicken coop looking up at the open door.  On the edge of the opening were three sparrows sitting in a row.  The sparrows go into the coop to eat the laying mash. They seem to think it’s as much for them as for the hens.

White Hen eventually jumped up onto the roost and went into the coop scaring the birds away

I loved the image of White hen looking up at the three birds. I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture, so I did a sketch instead.   I could picture it as a potholder, more blobs of paint defined by black stitching.

I’ll have to try it.
