Patzcuaro Strutters

Patzcuaro Strutters
6" x 8" Oil
SOLD

This is my submission for the Daily Paintworks Challenge.  It's from a photo I took on a trip to Patzcuaro, Mexico.  While this one is sold, it's motivated me to look through my photo files and to paint some more chickens and roosters!  Look for some soon.

Thank you Sherry! I went to a talk last week where they told us that prairie falcons mate for life. Roosters don't!
