A big flirt...

He's a big flirt....and I mean a BIG flirt!  I like his slightly sly, confident expression. He is, as my mother would say, "giving you the eye".   If you had such fluffy, soft feathers you would be a bit flirty too! This big boy is looking for a home... that is if you think you can handle him! :)

I have been painting a lot of roosters this week....BIG roosters.  But I took a break and painted this little guy.  Usually if someone tells you that you have chicken legs, it's an insult. But I think this rooster has a great looking pair of chicken legs...don't you?

This rooster was such fun to paint.  Roosters always are. There are so many great colors and shapes to work with.  I snapped this picture of this big guy as he was running across the barnyard.  Caught in midstride, he seemed worried that all the feed might be gone before he got there!  He is looking for a home and is up for auction on the Daily Paintworks Site !

It's Monday...back to the jungle! Although this painting is taken from my photo's off the coast of Georgia, it looks quite a bit more tropical. I loved the complex composition of the palm trees and all of the undergrowth along with the patterns of shadow caused by the late afternoon sun.  This painting is up for auction on the Daily Paintworks Site.  Check it out!
