Last Saturday the farmers market was pretty rainy and slow. Which is actually the best time for conversation and connection with friends and neighbors, those brave souls who come out to support us when it would be easier to stay home. I had time to chat with Diana of Scratch and Peck Feeds when she bought a t-shirt cap with a random chicken print on it. She wanted a chicken pin. I have been wanting to design a new pin for some time that uses my tiny t-shirt scraps. I have a long standing love affair with chickens in my art, so it was just the suggestion I needed to inspire me in the studio today. Here are the first hatched, I'm sure there will be more.
