... a clucking good collection....
This collection comprises of four individual portraits. Commissioned to paint a chicken for a birthday present, Sioban took flight to her friends who keep a wonderful chicken empire.
They have barren battery chickens that go broody, collecting anything up to eighteen eggs ... and still manage to rear two or three MISCREANT chicks.
There are at least two cockerels at any one time ... sometimes more. The COCK STAR is one called Henry ... who really does rule the roost (when the ladies allow him!). But the others sometimes have to be COCK SURE ... or fleet of foot if they are going to challenge him.
However, when the ladies gather for a HEN PARTY, you can be sure they have the whole situation weighed up ...
This piece was commissioned.
