A home design store, Davonshire, ordered a set of my baby chicks pieces. I am very happy about the project, but as always it is difficult to pay myself fairly and then have the piece be affordable after the store marks it up 50%. I've taken my photographs of the chicks at 3 days old and mounted them onto canvas or sometimes to board. I add the collage elements and then paint over the photograph using molding paste and paint to build up the texture. the entire piece is then sealed with UV protective varnish and dropped into a silver leaf floater frame.
To celebrate my big win over at Yoborobo this weekend (i won "myrna") i am following Yobo's lead and offering a giveaway of "Easter", the first chick in this post. All you need to do to enter into this giveaway is to tell me in the comments you want your name in the hat. I will have mr. chickory draw a name out and that person will receive an unframed wood mixed media piece of the chick. The winner can choose to have a different chick if they prefer. Good Luck everybody, the drawing will be on Friday!
* Boxer, you are ineligible for this contest. You will receive an "easter" with your purchase of the Red Pyle Rooster.
