new series

In the last week or so I've made a number of (failed) studies revolving around the idea of "piecework"; some involved my sewing machine (ack!). Then I got a visit from the "four little chickens" woman (I'm addicted to her chicken liver pate). She suggested I cut up "flawless" (I had planned to destroy it after all). Now the pieces act as studies for these paint hens which are not finished, of course (to be hung at a gallery in town....if the director doesn't call to say I need a room at McLean).

p.s. I hear that small abstracts are all the rage in "the" city.
