no one here but us chickens

On the road to Crowe’s Landing ,Stoney Lake ,there is a farm wth an arresting sign: a life size soft sculpture of an old man holding a board that reads,”EGGS”. If you are lucky he isn’t holding the sign that says ‘Eggs sold out”.

I stopped as usual to buy Meg’s eggs , stocking up to make Chocolate mousse for Joel’s concert the following week when I remembered I had paper and gouaches in the car.

I asked permission to capture  the chickens on paper and set about painting. Here are the results.

As the day wore on and the sun rose high in the sky, the chickens retreated to their coops and I to the lake.
