Rooster II

Pin It
Rooster II, Oil 12" x 12"
Sold.
A year ago I painted a rooster and I really liked how it turned out. So I tried a different version today. It's funny ... but after looking at this guy closely I came to realize that roosters are really strange looking! Colorful, but odd ...

Ben, Keith, Dana and Sandra - Thanks so much. Glad you like my rooster. I do too! I am going to try another rooster later in the week and break up the brush strokes a bit. This one was really fun to paint.

Me gusta mucho,muy fovista.Pero creo que con las patas estaria mejor. It likes me a lot. Matisse could have painted, but I think with its legs would be best
