Day 4: bok, bok.

I am obsessed with chickens. I love to paint them. You may recall a little chicken coop I painted in Asheville a few years ago for my friend Erica. She had one chicken named Bubbles that made me laugh and has forever influenced my artwork.
This was an olddddddd cutting board (1930's?) that I scored at a yard sale this summer. When I bought it from the family it once belonged to (she explained that she had too many of her great grandmother's cutting boards), I promised her I would put it to good and creative use. I left the original cord for hanging and gave it a quick sanding, but the aged beauty of the wood made for a great canvas. Finished size: approx 24" tall.
Bok, bok.
