One afternoon while in Patzcuaro, we went to a lakeside village a short distance from town for lunch. We took the long, exploratory route and saw the most interesting scenes. When we finally got to our destination, there were the most colorful roosters and chickens everywhere; more chickens, of course. I wondered if the chickens, who seemed to be running around anywhere, knew where to go at night; knew which yard was their's; knew what was going on. They weren't all fenced in. Nevertheless, the country food was delicious, the town was charming, the lake was low, the day was fun.

Beautiful, rich color on the rooster! Yes, I wonder about free chickens, too, and how they don't get eaten running free!

Pam, this is a really nice one! I love the shadow and the determined rooster on a mission, an action painting! I can't help but think about past vacations to colonial cities in Mexico. It sure makes me want to head to the airport.

I am new to this site, but I really like your work. It gives me a nice warm feeling. While I am not an artist, my wife of 36 years is and so is my 32 year old daughter. I am moved by people who can express themselves so eloquently through their art. Thank you.
