The Sign of Morning

The Sign of Morning
8" x 8"  Oil
Commission - SOLD

This rooster has just been sent off to California.  It was painted for a woman who wanted a rooster piece in her kitchen.  I hope she likes it!  This strutter lives locally at the Rock Ledge Ranch.

Traditionally, in the philosophy of the Chinese Zodiac, one of the symbols of the rooster is showy behavior.  And, that they lead other birds in the flock to the food that they have found.  Hmmm....I think that I would prefer if they were more dignified and pushed and encouraged the flock to search for it's own food.
