George Boutwell’s


Painting completed in: 1992

Several years ago I was driving into a small town in East Texas; I think it was Palestine but I'm not sure; when I saw this sign painted on a barn with chickens in the yard. I remember thinking that if those chickens could read, that they would be hiding in the woods. I added the pig and used a barn I found near West Columbia which I liked a little better! ( I found out later that the Sign on the Barn was in Waxahachie and met Elnora Aday who had owned the Restaurant )
