What? the Tate will be ringing you soon..x
Well, I think it is lovely!
You old fool. Just shut up and paint the chicken. We want to see it.
I have painted it.. The newspaper is suppose to be the feathers! Hey ho
I love the way that Joanne holds back her true feelings and makes sure she never lets anyone know what she really thinks.
Oops. It's lovely.
The comments you get make me smile x
I thought we were all 'sad bastards' here?From one SB to another, I think it's excellent. I wouldn't know where to start... well I'd be OK with 'First take your newspaper.' but after that...
Is there no end to your talents? It's brilliant.
Any deep meaning to the placement of the words??
Lol I had to cover one set which said paedeophile
John - it is absolutely beautiful - white sussex I think.
That was the idea pat
I was just thinking the same.. x
I'll go away and wear the hair shirt for a week.
You are so dada!
I will only say that papier mache folk art - similar to what you have there, except painted all over - were selling for $80 Canadian over twenty years ago in our fair province. You may have a new income stream there.
I think she's cute--almost as cute as I am.Love,Janie
I'll do a model of you next
Thank you. You can use the photo on my blog as a guide--you know, the one of the back of my head and I'm wearing a white sweater that turned into a blob in the photo so I look exactly like the hunchback of Notre Dame.
love the goggly eye and the tail! it looks like a small turkey tail to me.
You must come up with a name for that chicken! I think it's cute. Who knew you were so talented!?
The googly eyes make it. Has exactly the expression I'd expect on one of your charges.
You could fill the chicken runs with them as a decoy if the badger returns.
I think it's quite good. Is this a new category at the flower show? I am dying to see the other entries.
Is that an eye chart on its back?
Lol....not quite....I was going for newspaper as feathers
That's lovely! Why 'sad'? You should be proud - I would be.
Though I am a bit disappointed your title didn't refer to bodily fluids - for once.
I'll rectify that tomorrow
Looking much less like George now. And that should be your next project. In your spare (hah!) time.
What the hell is that?
You have a cruel streak
Funky Chicken! x
Love it! x
Once you've finished this pigeon you could perhaps make a chicken ;-)Hehehehe
It's looking good. We all have to give in to our creative side once in a while.
First prize coming up! I don't know in what category though!?!
You could 'market' these John! People go NUTS over hen and rooster thingies! And this looks like folk art in a way.
It's great! And much better than I could ever do, sad bastard that I am.
Hey! That's cute! Do a goat next....hee hee hee
I'd make it into a hat! That's great@ And I finally understand why you love TWD.
Well done John! She kind of reminds me of our old Licorice (Barred Rock Hen). I've stopped by to see how you and the 'gang' have been doing...I hope you've all been well and are enjoying summer across the pond. All is well here on the farm in Kansas. We lost our beautiful rooster Romeo a couple of months ago :( and the odd hen here and there but to natural causes. Shep is still doing his job :) Anyway...I just wanted to say Hello and send you hugs XO
It's a jaunty little chook!
Your entry for the Crafts section of the Flower show? 1st prize me thinks! well done!
I tell ya ... its cute!
Did you say she was a scare crow ? Too pretty to scare anyone - love her x
I love it. If I can't have George, can I have that. Is it a cock?
... they keep on flowing...
Folk art at it's finest!
You're a bloody clever chook!
Well, I say, Isn't that grand! A few months ago, I had my first ever experience with papier mache and have sworn, Never Again!
I'd buy it. x
I like it. I'll take two of them!
Add sculptor to your list of talents
I love it! Don't know about scaring crows though - is it six foot tall?
Well, for the sad bastard you art, you sure make me smile... and often! A little brains. A little talent. With an emphasis on the latter?
At least it's not going to shit on the carpet. Or chew the sofa to bits. I'll take half a dozen.
I've had nightmares revolving around such creatures.It would scare me off your land.XOWWW
SB No way. Love it.
Make about ten of them , stick them in a house ......and laugh your arse off as the badgers fill their face with a shit load of daily mirrors and glue ....revenge is a dish best served cold !
In fact , get shit loads of extremely hot curry paste and smear it over them .....that should be enough for them to understand that " chicken" isn't that good after all
Good idea matey.......I am worried it looks more like a Mexican pinyata
Who gives a shit what it looks like ? The badgers will have a mouth on fire for hours .....they will know exactly which field caused it ....problem solved !
I was worried it looked more like a pinyata
You made that?! IT's awesome. Get going on the production line and open an Etsy shop!
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
