Henrietta Hen Painting
Original Painting by Margaret Petchell 2014
Acrylic on Canvas 560mm x 840mm
From my collection of familiar , iconic New Zealand farm animals.
The animals peer out with a dignified anamorphic gaze, fixing the viewer with a look that connects with their soul.
The portraits show the animals proud and solemn against a white studio background, posing as if for a traditional sitting.
