Devoted Flock

Watercolor painting on a California Mission and flock of chickens by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Devoted Flock

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 23.5″h X 17.5″w, 2009.

This is one of those paintings with multiple meanings. Is it a painting about the mission and its flock of devoted worshipers? Is it a painting about this flock of chickens who are devoted denizens of the mission grounds? Or is it a painting about a flock of hens devoted to their handsome rooster? You be the judge.
I enjoyed doing this painting of the Carmel, California mission. It has strong shapes, diverse colors, and great character. The chickens just seemed the perfect complement to the scene.

This painting was juried into the 63rd Annual International Aqueous Open 2009 sponsored by the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and the WAS-H 2010 33rd International Exhibit sponsored by the Watercolor Art Society – Houston, (Merit Award).
