Chicken in the bathroom...part II

If I were smart I would buy these before posting them here...because the pictures below are ORIGINALS! So once they're gone, they're gone. Yet this gorgeous original artwork is STILL under $20 per art. Let's get to it:

Chicken Bubbles. From the awesome item description: "What comes to mind when you hear the phrase "chicken bubbles"? Is it magical, transparent spheres filled with beautiful poultry? We think alike, my friend, we think alike." Also from the same artist, an excellent little ACEO 2.5" x 3.5" original called Awakening Chicken.

Another ACEO size (2.5" x 3.5") original that just blows my socks off is "One Was Left". Creepy name aside (are those hawks in the background??) what a sweet and effortless-looking, yet crazy-good pen and watercolor sketch.

Finally, here is the thing about rules: LITERALLY, they are made to be broken. If not for the idea that it may be broken, a rule would not even exist, right?

With that bit of sophistry aside, let's examine "Chicken House Road", which breaks a couple of rules. For instance, it does not feature a chicken, and costs more than $20. What is it even doing here? Well, hear me out: this painting features a chicken house, plus it features the WORD 'chicken.' (I love words; I am just as happy to feature the word 'chicken' as an actual chicken.) And it is just barely over $20, coming in at $22. It's my blog, and my bathroom, and I decide "Chicken House Road," with its wild splashy tree, is the rule-breaker.
