9/11/09 – Art Up Close

The first chicken/rooster that I ever thought to do a portrait. It was one of my friends pet roosters.
I use to have some chickens many years ago and always thought they were very entertaining and funny creatures. Of course I had to name all of mine!

If you like the above painting…… It is in one of my books of 50 images titled: Art Journal of Daily Life – volume one available- just click here

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!

    Marvelous, marvelous, marvelous portrait. Favorited. I raised a wonderful rooster named Susy, from a chick. lol. You got it. Susy was no “chick”. When Suzy starting getting big, we drove down to my best friend’s neighbor, who raised chickens. The lady always told me, when I checked in on him, that Suzy was the best rooster she ever had. I don’t think she renamed him.

  • Hey moore, Thanks for the really funny story!!!!!!!! goes well with this funny creature!! :)
