This design, Chicken Trio, truly does epitomize the phrase, "funky chicken"!
Someone once sweetly told me that my chickens didn't look like any chickens they'd ever seen! That made me smile inwardly. I'm sure they have never seen a purple mouse, green cat, or a rabbit on a blue hill either! All of which I have designed and hooked in other pieces. As a primitive/folk artist, I'm not concerned with reality, rather I want a mood or essence to be the focus emanating from my work.
Even though I live within the city limits, I love that I can hear neighbor's chickens clucking. It feels like I've cheated and have a little bit of the farm right in my own backyard. For over a year now, someone has a rooster too. It makes me chuckle to myself, glad that he is still around, greeting each morning!
Chicken Trio is a light-hearted, fun rug to hook.
