Big Tiny

When S.V. Medaris moved to Wisconsin in 1998 “she knew she wanted chickens, and she knew she wanted to paint them.”

“Painting ‘Big Tiny’ was a total pain,” [S.V. Medaris] says. “Most of the time, I was down on my hands and knees or squatting, the canvas spread out on the garage floor. That was the only way I could control the brush well enough.”
