About the Artwork:

“A cottager and his wife had a Hen that laid a golden egg every day. They supposed that the Hen must contain a great lump of gold in its inside, and in order to get the gold they killed [her]. Having done so, they found to their surprise that the Hen differed in no respect from their other hens. The foolish pair, thus hoping to become rich all at once, deprived themselves of the gain of which they were assured day by day.” – Aesop’s Fables

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

VR Rivera (winterteeth) is a meat popsicle living and working in Portland, OR. Art school drop-out, classically trained illustrator and painter who dabbles in off-kilter colorful portraiture and intense love of the natural world. Split between growing up on the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere and dense city living, their art has grown to reflect that. They want everyone to see the beauty in the little things and the majestic world at large.
