Recycled Rooster by Cindy Schnackel

Quickly sketched with a very limited palette and just one large brush, on a scrap of “OSB” (oriented strand board), which is used in construction. Original is about 16 × 16 inches, and about a half inch thick. Read my blog post about more OSB critters created at the same time

Most of my work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without a plan. I believe there are meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying the absurdity! Full Bio

    sooo cool Cindy!

  • Thanks, Marianna! This scrap was on our patio and i was about to throw it in the trash today when I just said, no, I’m gonna doodle all over it with a big brush! There were other characters, too, it was a long narrow piece, but I didn’t like them enough to save them, just this one.

    :)) Great use for a scrap bit of “OSB” and what a great canvas it’s turned into for your painting. I love the light in the eye …. you bring your characters to life with your touch there.

  • Thanks so much!
