Chicken Ranch ~ watercolor collage


15x22 watercolor collage on 140 lb Arches paper; chickens are collage and cut from one failed painting on top of really bad old wooden shack painting to make a new scene. It is meant to be a humorous piece from two 'dogs'. Moral of the story: Never throw away a bad painting. You can always recycle it or paint on the back side.
C&C welcome

Thanks Doug and Cyndi. No, I do not, but we had lots of them on the farm/ranch when I was growing up. My job was to take care of them and I hated it.

And you portray them so charmingly! We had a dairy and chicken farm behind my family home, and ahhh...the joys of chicken smell

I'll never forget that smell. We had to wash eggs in PineSol and that has its own aroma. Thanks!

Re: Chicken Ranch ~ watercolor collage

Such an inspiration. I have never considered collage for failed paintings...thanks ....a great idea.

I
I love the cheerfulness of your collage....has a Chagall quirkiness... With a fauvist background...lots of fun.

Great job and good use of old work that didn't work.
