"Lady Gouldi-Hen"

A bit of whimsy...

This is a custom piece I did for a friend/client. She got the idea for it years ago when I drew a couple of chickens with the plumage coloration of other types of birds (eagle, hawk). She wanted this hen to have the plumage color of a Gouldian Finch. Definitely used some colors that don't normally find their way into chicken art! ;-)
