Donna Howard - Artist and Official Boss of Myself

Return to Blah, blah, blog

I've started working on a visual memory book. Little snippets of my life I want to get down on canvas so they're out of my head. Childhood memories mostly. I've used chickens to represent my family - because I was a chicken as a kid, afraid of my own shadow. But chickens have many sides. They'll chase you right down and peck you if they feel the need. So I figued I could give them a myriad of emotions and still be true to the chicken. I'll try and give you the stories as I remember them because I think they inform the work and help people connect to it.

The first painting is a self portrait.
