Rooster are such a colorful addition to the garden, but a noisy addition to a household. If you have chickens you also attract predators like Coyotes which sets off our German Shepherd highly territorial dogs. Chickens also enjoy vegetable leavings and left over rice the dogs usually eat. There are never any leftovers wasted when you have chickens, dogs, and cats. It's a little noisy sometimes, but even with no farm animals you would still here the breeding red tailed Hawks calling every morning, the Coyotes howling every night, and all the other sounds of life in the country. Such is life, and I guess I wouldn't have it any other way. Write if I get work, and everyone in fair weather or fowl have a good day.
My name is Annie and I paint under the name of Chabrier. I've worked as an artist all my adult life. I usually worked for large corporations,doing resin pours, etched glass, stain glass, sculpted architectural appointments, and paintings or murals. Most of these works can be seen in Major Hotels, Casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and in corporate and private jets. If you've ever been to Las Vegas a good example of my work is the Mirage. I sculpted the original ceiling panels, crown mouldings, base mouldings, and leaf table tops for DEC Associates the company that manufactured all these parts.
Now I am concentrating on my private art work, and trying to network with other artists. I have a husband and two grown sons, and a couple of wonderful German Shepherd dogs. I live out in the country, with emus for neigbors, and roses and fruit trees. My favorite flowers are Roses and Bearded Iris. I paint what I know and what I grow. I work from life or photographs or both. I love the San Diego Zoo and The Wild Animal Park, and love to photograph the birds there. I draw everyday for www.jellybeanstock.com and my paintings can be seen
