Rise and Shine!

The lady who bought my "Spring Chicken" collage piece asked me if I could do a companion for her. She raises chickens, so I asked her if she had a favourite rooster, and she sent me some great photos of this fellow. He is a "Lakenvelder" rooster, very handsome, and although the hens adored his fancy feathers and ruby comb and wattle, he wasn't up to snuff in the baby chick producing department!  He has gone to live at Circle R Ranch near London, Ontario where he will,  as my client says, " live a happy long life" Happy Retirement Mr. Rooster!

Donating an older painting

This weekend I donated a older painting for a raffle being held at the Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing (WAMBO). The money raised is for the local Junior C Hockey Team, the Wallaceburg Lakers.  
I did this painting a few years ago as part of a "Local Landmark Challenge" at Wetcanvas. It was the first time I had painted a car, and I found it quite the challenge indeed. I took the reference photo at WAMBO a few years ago. 
Congratulations to the lady that won the draw!
