This original artwork, commissioned for this blog, as painted by artist (and author) Lee Edward Fodi, illustrating the use of negative space.
Okay, it wasn't actually commissioned for this blog. It was borrowed, after a special presentation Lee made yesterday.
Of course, considering the subject matter, it's not likely I'll return it. The chicken is skateboarding, after all. And it's not just any chicken. It's a portrait of the artist's first pet -- a blind chicken, named Cynthia.
Cynthia never really skateboarded. But you'd never know it from the painting!
