ROCKY the Rooster and Run Forrest run!

I have wanted to paint a close up of a Rooster for a while.
Many of my friends have chickens and I have taken countless photos of them.
So why not now!

I started this painting, one night,
painting for my current show, 
it was
much too late, and it was not working out very well…
so I  decided to bag it, I took the unfinished painting
 up to my storage closet and, because I could not even bear to look at it, 
I turned it facing the wall! 

The next day I pulled it out and realized that it was on the right track. 
I worked on it for the rest of the day. 
It then became one of my favorite paintings I have ever done.
funny how it goes.


“ROCKY”  the Rooster 30″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas
….and while we are on the subject of Chickens…
Here is another one of the paintings in my current show.

This one NEVER fails to bring a smile to my face.
I just love this chicken, he’s sassy and he has got spunk!
And as they say…He is getting…. 
“Getting the Hell out of Dodge!”

“Run Forrest Run” – 16″ x 20″ –  acrylic on canvas.

Both of these paintings are on view in my Current Show which will run through
the rest of this calendar year!
