Farewell to Bob Ross

With sadness, we share the news that Butch's friend and fowl, Bob Ross, died in his sleep today.

Born in 1990, Bob Ross was by all accounts the oldest chicken in the world. And no doubt, the only mind reading chicken who traveled to art festivals from New York to California.

Bob was a show chicken, a White Crested Black Polish and he will be dearly missed.

The painting of Bob that Butch brought for the Straw into Gold show is a humorous portrait and will be a lasting tribute to a unique bird.
