Miniature Painting/ACEO Art Card #21 - Rooster

Acrylic on Bristol Series 300
2.5 x 3.5

We had three baby chicks in my backyard.  As long as they were hens, my neighbors were "on board" with this arrangement (they ARE legal in my town). Imagine my shock when I went outside to visit with them (the chicks, not the neighbors) and one started crowing at me!  (I admit, as he grew, he was starting to look a little different....)  

Clearly, eggs are not in his future. Needless to say, he now resides on a farm in La Grange.  This little painting pays homage to that little cock....  :)
