The Chicken That Started It All

Matthew’s Rooster, 2006
This was one of the first chickens I painted, a gift for my son Matthew.  As I often do I revisit my reference photos and paint animals over again.  On rare occasions I will not let myself use an animal again for a painting, probably because I was frustrated and not able to accomplish what I wanted.  Each time I paint an animal again I feel I find new discoveries about the animal or about painting.  Unfortunately I don’t always take photos but I know I have done others of this rooster and they are out in the world somewhere!
