Thanks to my friends on Facebook for weighing in on my assortment of photographs of eggs-as-still-life (funny when you think about it, shouldn't eggs really be quickening life, not still life? Just asking) This is the basic composition I'm using to create the 10"x10" painting I will donate to the Tour de Cluck for their auction to benefit Davis Farm to School Connection.
The Tour is a Chicken Coop Crawl (on bicycles, of course-this is Davis!) around town to visit chicken coops. I kid you not.
People are paying money to gather on May 22 in Central Park for the fun. In addition to the art auction, there will be a Fowl Food Fair and the poultry-lovers' answer to hog-calling: the "Courage to Cluck" contest. If you don't believe me, check it out at http://www.davisfarmtoschool.org.
This is coming just in time for our candidates for city council to come out and show the voters they're not chicken.
