How To Round Up a Loose Chicken

December 2, 2020

I have been painting as I can. I could paint most days but sometimes I can’t make it happen — baby duties, and chores I lay upon myself. Sometimes my mind isn’t in the right place. Sometimes a chicken gets loose and I have to go round them up. I learned a water hose shot behind them works well to corral them one way and then the other. You don’t have to get them wet. It works well to herd them back into the fence. You shouldn’t use that technique on a baby.

Back to my paintings — some of these painting I have worked on for many months. I do a little here and a little there. Sometimes I don’t know how they will end up. One day they speak to me and I see what I need to do. I need to make them right. I know it is right when they tell me. Then I hang them on the wall.

I enjoy painting on old wood, used items, found items, things with wrinkles and scratches and a history before I encountered them — wood along a sidewalk, a stick from the mountain, a smashed can from the grocery store parking lot, little mirrors made in China.

We all have a history. I have a story. We all have a story.

You can see more of my art here in my store.

See you soon,
