My sister really liked the print to, so I started to watch Ebay, hoping that I might find a duplicate print. A couple of years of perusing, finally netted me a duplicate, and then within a couple months, I was able to get another one for my brother. I gave them as Christmas presents, and we all now have a copy of 'Aunt Vera's chickens' hanging in our homes.
While I was searching for duplicates, I found another print of Hunt's paintings that I also really liked. It was the same size but a different frame. Both of these prints grace our kitchen, hanging side by side.
I particularly love Edgar Hunt's attention to detail, and the soft plushy textures he was able to achieve in his painting. All his painting are barnyard subjects. I've looked at the pricing on originals - would love to have one, but they are a little rich for my blood.
Here are few more examples I found on the internet. This first one would make a perfect match with my other two. Note how he included the broom and the beautiful grey/tan hen in all three examples.

And that is about all I have to say for today.
