Rooster painting 2 by Reptangle Rooster painting 2 by Reptangle
I am not a painter. I have always wanted to learn to paint, but other than one oil painting class in school ( a total disaster) I never really got it together to learn it.
The foot isn't right... erg.

This is one of two paintings that I have done in real media that I can show without cringing. Both are chickens.
Acrylic on a board its about 12 x15 inches
( The date on there is when I filed a copyright on it, I actually painted this around 1983, pre- Windstone)

This is beautiful. I went back to painting after 40 years and started with my son's chickens. They make great subjects. Keep it up - it is a gift!

Wow, great colors though! It's magnificent how you were able to make the plumage appear to glow like that. Wonderful work of contrast. :)

I think it's lovely...and yay for chickens! :D (Did you ever read "The Book of the Dun Cow"? I think you'd really like that one.) :)

No! I'll have to read it! It's about chickens?

Oh my goodnes! I have never seen any writer use the courage of roosters in a story! They are rarely respected for being fierce protectors of their home and family!

Believe me, this is an AWESOME book! It shows both the Rooster's courage, loyalty and fierce steadfastness as well as his inner demons, his vanity and temper. It does have religious overtones and morals (like Narnia), but hopefully that shouldn't spoil it for you. I've read it so many times, the cover fell off, so I had to buy a new copy. And the sequel, if you ever get that, isn't called "The Book of Sorrows" for nothing! ;_;

I just found a copy ( with the same cover you have, there seems to be two versions) on ebay and bought it!

I just finished it, now I need to find the next one! I loved it! The author really knows his chickens.
It is so much like a Norwegian folk tale.

Yay! :D And there are a few different versions of the cover, depending on the printing date. :) Let me know what you think of it! I need to do more fanart of it, because the last one was sooooooo old (and done in crayons, even): [link] (Yes, there's a cockatrice and basilisks in the book as well.) :)
