My first small painting this month, I can't see me getting another four finished like I had planned! I have been too busy finishing my larger ones. I have been wanting to paint this rooster for a while...I took his photo when I was at a small zoo. He had personality plus and followed me all around the place!! I loved the black and white feathers!


  1. He certainly does has personality plus! Just love how you painted all those feathers.......wonderful !!!

  2. Beautifully done Karen - great composition and shadows!

  3. A stunner.
    I enjoyed going back through your posts. Neat to read your influences. My friend is taking a Whisson workshop this week in Maine. He captures the sun brilliantly and I agree about Carol Marine..totally amazing!

  4. This is totally stunning Karen... love his attitude :-)

  5. This is so incredibly cool! the palette is perfect and so is he! You really captured his attitude!

    and thank you for your kind words!
