Art: Hippaelectryon by Artist Heather Sims

This is my entry for Nibblefest theme of “2 or more creatures mixed together”.  I thought a lot about this theme.  I knew I like to paint chickens and other farm animals.   I found the Hippalectryon!   A fantasy creature from Ancient Greece that is half horse and half rooster with yellow feathers.  The front half is horse and the rear a rooster.   This mythological creature dates back to 9th century BCE and is notably seen on vase paintings, some currency and a few literary works. 

 This is my version!   Perfect for horse and chicken art lovers alike.. Heck.. you get 2 in 1!  What more could you ask for??  Black horse combined with a copper maran rooster!

A joy to paint!  Would make a great gift for an art and/or animal lover.  Very unique! 

  Thank you for looking!
