So, there is this fantastically awesome rooster show coming up THIS Friday from 5 to 7 (that is the reception opening) at the Artisan Depot in Cowan, TN. All of the Franklin County Arts Guild members are tasked to create any kind of rooster their minds can come up with, any medium whatsoever. This is my submission. A pissed off rooster. A reflection of my mood the past few weeks? Nah. Just a funny picture I found on a stock photography site. I loved it. I bought it. I painted it. He moved me, my kids loved him, he made me laugh, so… here he is! I don’t use stock photography very much, but I don’t have very many roosters handy to photograph, so… I was desperate. When you DO use stock photography, please PAY for the photographs, an artist took those pictures, give them their dues. It was worth every cent. 🙂
This lovely face was painted with assorted Daniel Smith watercolors on cradled 2″ Ampersand Aquabord. You can view him at the show. Please come! I saw some of the pieces, and I can tell you, there will be some fighting and hair pulling over who gets to buy what. I might pull some hair myself. Just sayin’.
