The Black Pirate

Maree  Clarkson

Tarlton, South Africa

Artist's Description

Watercolour in Moleskine 200gsm Nature Journal – 12″ × 8″

  1. “The pig and the chicken were on their way to breakfast, trying to decide what to have. When chicken said, ’’Let’s have ham and eggs.‘’ The pig then replied, ’’That’s fine for you, it’s a small donation on your part, but it’s a total sacrifice for me!’’

This guy might be the reason for one of Solly’s roosters only hanging out with the one hen and not associating with the rest of the crowd. As he struts past my gate (Tarlton, South Africa), giving me the beady eye, and not condescending to enter, he seems pretty sure that no-one in the yard is going to challenge his authority – ever!
