Southern Fried Pride
... this image really did come to me at night in my sleep. My giggling woke me up. The thought of the much photographed scene of the cannon at Kennesaw National Battlefield, but behind the cannon stood a Big Chicken infantryman and his regiment of big chickens armed to repel the invaders from the north. ' Just had to sketch that image at my bedside table before I could fall back asleep.
I've shown this final drawing of this sketch at a number of exhibitions and received similar giggles. It started me on a search for other places around Marietta area to insert the Big Chicken. If you, the viewer, have other ideas of where the Big Chicken should wander, please let me know. Nothing is too outlandish!
