RIP Rosey the Chicken

Another little bird told me that this chicken has passed away, to seedier pastures filled with earth worms and cats that are ripe for torture. May she have a comfy wheelbarrow in which to make a nest.

Just the finishing touches left to do on this illustration and she'll be on display for a single day in August at Paul Vincent Studios' "Beautiful Women" show. Then she goes on to her rightful spot in a certain person's home... wherever that might be... hmmmmm....

Going to Disneyland

The bunnies are heading out to the west coast for a bit of fun in the sun.
Car rides with children can be a bit rough and this pit-stop illustrates that well, don't you think?

This painting was inspired by the photos Dorothea Lange took of the migrant mother and her many children.
If you'd like to dig further on this native Jersey photographer, wikipedia does it best.

Neither Ken nor I are ones to get caught up in semantics or Art-ese.
But, one night, as we were teetering on our bar stools, discussing our current and upcoming pieces and acting clever, a man with a blog happened to come in, ask us a question or two & snap a photo.

Ken was a sloppy, drunken mess. Feeling shy and twitchy, I was no better.
We were both sort of muttering, mouths full of marbles. How this man understood us is a mystery... nevertheless, he sorted it out and had a few helpful things to say about our work.

So, thanks Mr. Herrick for sorting some of it out and helping us sum it up!
