Henry ,copyrighted 2007

One more big guy , this one is from Maine where I go paint every summer . Every rooster that i paint ,I have a connection with them ,this one lived in this beautiful farm with about 25 hens , a beautiful bird he was! until a fox came during the night in the coop , poor Henry took a real beating from this fox ,but managed to save many of the hens and save himself , his owner really respected him after this ordeal , a Rooster will fight to no end to save his girls!

This was my first rooster ,I raised him from a two days old chick , not knowing he was going to be a rooster , it was supposed to be four hens, he was the cutest little thing .It was a great summer to see them matured into there own , I would paint on my picnic table and they would walk all over my paintings, they would come in the studio with the cat and the dog . By fall he had matured to a beautiful rooster and he knew it! We used to have little fights together but I still loved him as a pet. In his third winter he caught the flu and I couldn't save him , it was sad to see him go. OK , by now if you read this ,you must think I am crazy ! but i do love all animals.

I am on a roll with my series of roosters , well this is George ,I bought him a year and half ago at the farmer's market , the local science teacher was selling him , he had been hatch in the class room as a project , he is very handsome ,has developed an attitude ! the first six months I could hold him fine , but not now , he rules the yard and my dog Clancy , I have some clips on the camera I would love to put on You tube when he chases the dog. I don't have to worried he keeps watch on the house , all roosters seems to be this way, my last one Pierre was even worst.

The red Baron #3

Many roosters have been painted, in the past and I have held back my wanting to paint them because so many people do them , but right now I am surrounded by them , I have three chickens myself, of one being a rooster George , and my next door neighbors has four hens and one rooster , this summer two of the hens had baby chicks , 7 roosters and three hens , all look like this one, they walk in my yard all day by my window, along with mine , they are adorable , not fighting yet!
but my neighbor says, some of them have to go soon , I better hurry up and paint them , so this is the week to paint my little friends,this one is the top dog of the bunch ,he is called the red baron .
