I don’t know what it is about this image that makes me giggle; perhaps the chicken with a uni-brow (does it count as a uni-brow if their eyes are on the sides of their heads?) or maybe it’s the background chicken shooting an egg out of her bottom. Or maybe it’s the lack of sleep. Who knows? As long as we’re laughing, hey?
Chickens were my inspiration after visiting my parents for the Easter holiday. My mom has become a backyard chicken farmer, and has just replenished her flock of two (down from four: R.I.P. Thelma Lou & Aunt Bea) with four more chicks. So, Helen Crump and Sweet Juanita will have Laverne, Shirley, Lucy, and Ethel join them in about 4 weeks; for now, the chicks live in cardboard boxes under heat lamps in the Florida room. This one’s for you, Mam!
This is straight from my sketchbook, which takes watercolor pretty well. Watercolor and pen.
