Just Struttin

Just Struttin 12 x 12 oil on canvas

After just sittin and laying an egg our little red hen is struttin around full of pride at her accomplishment and showing off for the other hens (and maybe the rooster). I continue to try and stay loose in my work but controlled. I use a thin underpainting and in many areas that underpainting shows through in the final work, it allows for the transparency to let the white of the canvas show trough, the violet in the upper corner and at the base of the hen as well as the gold tone in the top center show that fairly well.


  1. Just a gorgeous combination of colors, Jean, and all so well placed!

  2. Really enjoy your brushstrokes and your delicate touch in the hen paintings as well as your flower paintings! You have a wonderful ability to make the canvas "breathe."
