Chickens


This is a watercolor painted on paper. Reminds me of our chickens & barn that we had when I was a little girl. I had one that I saved from being pecked to death. Her name was Biddie & she was a little chicken. I would go out & whistle & she would come running. She followed me around whenever I was outside. She liked to set in my lap. She was more like a dog or cat then a chicken

Ted Degrazia

If I am in Tuson AZ a must see is "Gallery in The Sun". Ted Degrazia's Studio Gallery & home. He built his Gallery Studio, home & a little chapel in the foot hills of Catalina Mountains in the early 1950's. I have a painting almost finished of the Chapel, I will post tomorrow. Ted studied with Diego Rivera. Love the answer he would give when asked which was his favorite painting? "Best painting is the next one. I haven't painted it yet. I am in competition with myself & thats tough because I believe that each thing I do must be better in some way then the last"----Ted Degrazia
