I hope this is okay to post here.
For those that have not heard about it, ‘The Traveling Chicken’ (or TC) is a project begun in 2012 by Azra - an artist in the UK. Azra purchased this little yellow ceramic chicken decoration to paint as part of a still life. Having painted the chick, Azra contacted her artist friend Karla Uphoff in the USA and asked if she would be interested in painting the chick. Karla contacted Nan Johnson who painted the chick, who contacted… well you get the idea.
The little yellow chicken has traveled the world since then and has been painted by many artists. TC’s entire journey has been recorded as she has gone along in the Traveling chicken blog. If you take a look at the blog and the artists who have painted TC, you may recognize a few familiar names!
TC also has a facebook page!
The blog is currently kindly maintained by artist Pandalana Williams. The waiting list to paint the chicken is getting a little short and Pandalana asked me if I knew of any artists who might be interested in painting TC. I passed on a couple of names I thought about from DP and I suggested to Pandalana that I could mention it here. She agreed!
Best of luck. I look forward to seeing more of TC on her travels!
