Decaf by Cindy Schnackel

© Cindy Schnackel, see Profile for more copyright info.

Acrylic palette knife painting on stretched cotton canvas, 48" wide x 36" high, (1.5" deep, edges black). This and two more of my large chicken paintings went to an art show called The Women’s Room, at the Bragg’s Pie Factory gallery in Phoenix, Arizona, in Sep. 2011.

My work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without planning, at least to begin. There may be meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying absurdity! Full Bio

    Does a chicken drink decaf when he’s sick? (The alternative would be just too gruesome.) Congratulations on another great painting Cindy!

  • Thank you!

    Cindy – your artistic skill combined with your brain produces MAGIC. Perhaps the next version could be “stylist” and the chicken could be using that mouth like a blow dryer. hee hee. Now, honestly, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to go to that thought without the inspiration of your work. Fantastic.

  • LOL, thanks!
