Steppin' Out-Inishmor Rooster, Ireland - sold



6"x6" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

"The girl who can't dance says the band can't play."
- Yiddish proverb


Ah, another one of these fine feathered friends. When they did come running all at once, I was concerned I'd be pecked to death on a foreign shore, never to be seen again. But I stood my ground with my camera, they all 'put on the brakes' and looked up at me with all their chicken clucking going on. Now I know it seems funny that I'd go so far away to take photos of a bunch of chickens...but I've always loved chickens. So this was just a lucky bonus in addition to all the wonderful things I saw in Ireland. My grandmother ran a hatchery in addition to a big dairy barn and I always loved going to help gather eggs! As I got older, every county fair, I'd love to go see the 4-H exhibits & look at all the varieties of chickens people would bring. In fact I'd always wanted to have a place where I could keep chickens....but that hasn't come to fruition...yet. I might just have to keep visiting those county fairs in the fall!

This painting is sold!
