Jane's Chicken, Buffy

During the summer of 2011 I took a class from Carla Sonheim.  Carla's class  Junk Mail Artist's Book was a blast.  We created journals out of junk mail.  Since each piece of junk mail is sized differently, one had to frequently incorporate something into the next piece from the previous piece.  So when you turn the pages you were changing and adding from the previous journal page.  There is a line right through Buffy's eye.  That is where the page turns.  An abstract moose appears on the next page.  Thus a rooster becomes a moose.  Carla frequently teaches online classes.  If you are interested check out her web page, http://carlasonheim.wordpress.com/4629-2/.

Wow John! It looks like your enjoying your well deserved retirement. I am enjoying your blog posts. I love the chickens. They do have much iconic meaning for us.

Have a wonderful weekend.
