"Bill's Chicken"-- 11" x 14" -- Oil -- 1986

Sometimes unexpected elements offer themselves to artists doing work on site. I used the pattern of shadows, the geometry of the leaning window frame, and the close color relationships of this spot on William F. Reese's farm in Cle Elum, Washington. By chance, a black chicken wandered by and stopped in the perfect location.

Greaves used the pattern of shadows, the geometry of the leaning window frame, and the close color relationships of this spot on William F. Reese's farm in Cle Elum, Washington. By chance, a black chicken wandered by and stopped in the perfect location. Look closely. The chicken is there.
