1 Ballad: Chicken Chair

Detail: "Chicken Chair", from "The Rest"__48 x 36 oil for 

The image above is a SMALL PART of my painting for a special museum event.

I call this part of the painting "Chicken Chair",
Over the next few days and weeks I will unveil the whole work, and tell of my inspiration.
My instructions from the curator were to "break out of my box", and explore the theme.
If you know my work, do you see anything "out of the box", here?

SO...I have been invited to "sing" part of a ballad!!
"Ballad of the Farm: Then. Now. Tomorrow." is a unique exhibit of artworks 
Presented by Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art, with funding from NEA (National Endowment for the Arts),  MAAA, (Mid-America Arts Alliance), and others. 
The opening reception is Saturday, May 23, 2015. See the BROCHURE
Eleven artists have interpreted historic photos from family farms of long ago.
I think I am the only artist from Texas! 
I was given this opportunity last October, along with
 HUNDREDS of amazing historic photos to inspire me. 
My blog will take you along on my latest journey on the land!
Lets go!!
