Cock-A-Doodle Doo

So those canvases I prepped last week?  Still haven’t touched them.  I forewent crisp, clean canvases in favor of scrap plywood that I used to catch overspray from previous spray paint projects.  My love affair with repurposing runs deep ya’ll.

My favorite painting topics are of the animal variety.  They offer a huge array of color choices, expression, and…they are fun to do (because if it’s not fun, why do it?). My subject of choice this time was a Welsummer Rooster- a handsome boy for sure.  I spread out my materials in my cramped little attic craft loft and got to work.  Over the next few days- whenever I could fit in slapping down some paint in between rearing three kids- things slowly came together.

On a whim I decided to add a background to make the bird “pop”.  Other than a frame that-will-be-added-at-a-later-date-but-I-have-no-idea-when, it’s done and hanging in the dining room.  Now to only start on the other five million images swirling in my head that I want to get painted. I am going to need a lot more scrap wood!
