Merry Chickens!

I'm sure that time escapes most of us (as it has me) at this time of year, and hopefully you are able to sneak in some fun time to replenish your creative spirit.  

What have you been up to?  I've been playing chicken. 

Earlier this year, I played along with an art challenge issued by my good friend Jenn (my sister from another mother, living in Nanaimo, British Columbia), and drew and Zentangled (then colored with Copic markers) this first chicken:

Jenn purchased this chicken 
-- "Whackdoodle" --  
my first art sale! 

I rewarded her kindness (and crazy enthusiasm) 
by gifting her with my second chicken:

Well, she started a trend. 
While visiting my parents in Florida earlier this month, 
I drew a few more chickens and got some help sketching some from my Dad and nephew Ed, too.

Here is another chicken I just finished:

Introducing the third in the 
Chicken Challenge series, "Della" ..

And so, in the spirit of the holiday spirit, 
and because my Christmas cards will be late, 
I bring you these very Merry Chickens
full of holiday cheer:

Merry Christmas one and all!

DeFiaNtLy DiFfeReNt & CreAtiVeLy Yours,

THAT is one damn gorgeous chicken!! I"m so glad I inspired you to make more because your third is truly spectacular! Sorry it took me some time to comment, my damn bloglovin' isn't delivering all my friend's blogs to my email anymore. Why?? who knows! I emailed them, they say they're working on it. I think i'll have to find another blog wrangler, lol.
Hugs my dear!
