1. Art from the One Chick Show

In October, 2004, S.V. Medaris had her "One Chick Show" featuring oils, etchings, and pastels of chickens. The highlight was a 13' x 20' canvas painting of a Buff Orpington cock (Big Tiny) on a stage, with a little dog (Dexter) looking up at him. Here is a box and a tile featuring art from that painting.

2. The Poultry Underground

About The Poultry Underground: Once upon a time, not so very long ago, in Madison, Wisconsin, it was illegal to have chickens in a coop in your backyard. Thankfully (in 2004) that has changed. Here's a nostalgic design remembering those clandestine times. These characters are printed on shirts, tanks, mugs, steins....see them all at 'The Dancing Dog'.

3. A Fowl Line up
Featuring the words of Grandma Moses: " If I didn't start painting, I would have raised Chickens."...words that us chicken-ranchin' artists (or any chicken ranchers) can relate to. See all of the products available with this design at 'Squeezy's Fowl Line Up' store. "I especially like the large mug," says Squeezy.

4. The Farmer's Wife:

S.V. Medaris' rendition of the main character in the nursery rhyme "Three Blind Mice." See her at Squeezy's 'The Farmer's Wife' store.
