"Spouting Off"

"Spouting Off" oil on canvas board 8"x10", price $245.00
Really the main reason I have a rooster is because they are cool looking, and maybe if he does his job, he could do half of what it takes to make baby chicks. I think it would be really cool to have one of my 6 hens decide to hatch some eggs. The first rooster we had given to us was very beautiful but also very large, loud, and mean (see below). This guy (above) was given to us (I am amazed, well not really, how many people would love to give away their rooster) we do like that his crow is quiet enough that it does not wake us up at 4 in the morning. He is actually smaller than all our hens, so I don't think he can even do what roosters really want to do. He is getting mean, and attacks me alot, and he gets kicked whenever he comes and tries to get me. I wish I could get a hold of a big beautiful, quiet and sweet rooster, if that were possible. See my paintworks gallery for info on purchasing the painting.

 I also included just for fun, a little clip of my little rooster doing a little crowing, it is from this video clip that I took the reference to paint from. check it out!
