Which Came First? #2 is the second in a series of three pieces that were designed as "sketches" for a much larger piece about which came first, the chicken or the egg? The series was designed to help me trouble shoot small parts of the composition before bringing them all together.
In this piece, I've used the roosters eyes as funnel shaped eggs which are gently releasing chicks into the air. What were the chicks to become? I'm not sure at this point. The background with the lava flow was a bit of flight of fancy on my part.
Which Came First #2 is a gouache and ballpoint pen mixed media piece on illustration board, 8" x 6.5" (approx), matted, framed and ready to hang.
