Painter Takes Realist Photograph

Poultry find beaks out of joint

Celebrated  artist Grahame Sydney visited last week, and sent us this shot of the feather. Unsigned, unfortunately.

We have found that the chickens like to hang about the feather, perhaps because they erroneously imagine it to be some tribute to them. It is not. So when G. S. took an evening study on the hill, naturally the chickens insisted on inclusion.

They have let it be known that, although Sydney knows a thing or two about landscape, he has not put them in their best light  as they see it.

We say they are lucky to be included at all, and frankly we are getting a bit fed up with their film star type airs and graces.
