Your Chickens - - Vets For Poultry - BY ARTIST CHRIS JONES

ARTIST CHRIS Jones has been pro­duc­ing an an­nual calendar of his poul­try paint­ings since 2016. His 2019 calendar fea­tures a mix­ture of older works and re­cent paint­ings — many of them com­mis­sions for keep­ers of spe­cific breeds. Through the calendar he rep­re­sents the di­ver­sity of breeds — both large and ban­tam fowl — im­ages of birds in their en­vi­ron­ments and por­traits of in­di­vid­ual birds. He in­cludes breeds such as the Sus­sex, Or­p­ing­ton and Silkie, as well as ex­otics like the Sul­tan and Yoko­hama. There are even a few ducks for those who don’t keep chick­ens.

Chris has been a full-time artist for nearly 20 years. For the last decade he has con­cen­trated on poul­try — in­clud­ing por­tray­als of spe­cific breeds.

The 2019 Poul­try Calendar by Chris Jones, which is A3 size and pro­duced in full colour, is pub­lished by Uniq Pub­lish­ers and costs £9.99 + £3 P&P (UK). Or­der through www. chrisjone­sart.com.
