I've been working on a mixed media series using roosters and chickens. All three of these were started when I offered to clean out a messy watercolor palette at a recent PAC play day at Collage. The artist said she couldn't paint as her palette was too messy. I cleaned it taking very little paint while doing so and here is the result. Strange beginning? Yes. There are so many people who now have chickens in their backyard. It's quite remarkable.
