Chicken Nancy Luce

Nancy Luce was a poet who lived for 76 years on Martha’s Vineyard raising chickens and writing poems about them to sell to tourists. She died in 1890 and today tourists leave plastic chickens on her grave.
This is her portrait, 8" x 10", acrylic on acid-free paper, work in progress, by Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler.
