"Chickens," I thought to myself," chickens might be a good idea."

So that's what I started to do. 

This vintage chicken has been around all my life. She started off in my grandmother's kitchen on those little shelves on either side of the kitchen sink window. She and her side kick rooster live with me now.

  1. I'm really enjoying watching your farm animal collection evolve! And I agree completely, the chickens are charming!

  2. thank you both.
    I seem to be on a bit of a roll.

  3. Yes, you are really doing great.
    I must add that part of the charm for me is in your distinctive style of sketchiness which adds a vibration to the work that seems so alive.
