This painting is being auctioned on ebay
as we speak.
The artist is listed as "Jack Randolph Gavin II" - I googled him and can't find any mention of him anywhere. But that is DEFINITELY a brick under that headless chicken's arse. Granted, it's got plumper breasts and a sexy decolletage, but still... headless chicken on a brick, man.
He must have strangled it before it tried to make friends with him.
Painting currently for sale on ebay for $7,000.00
I also just looked up the gallery in upstate NY where this artist is supposedly being shown.... they have no such artist on their website.
I also looked up the "Jackrabbit Press" that he supposedly owns, and sent him an email including this photo AND a still from W&I of the chicken in the oven, asking him if this is just a coincidence or what. Will update if/when I hear back from him. He may not be the artist, he may just be a dude named Jack. We'll see what transpires.
*UPDATE* They listed "West End Gallery, Coming, New York" on the auction. The West End Gallery is in CORNING, NY - not "Coming". Wishful thinking, methinks. I think this auction is a complete hoax. In any case, I sent the gallery an email to ask if they've ever heard of Jack Randolph Gavin II. Will let you know what I hear.
