Rooster Painting II for May 2014

16x20 Original Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Mr. Brilliant is a fluffy rooster with yellow, black and white, brown and gold feathers.  I took pictures of him and five others recently along with the prettiest hens and baby chicks.  They were ranging in a yard at a nearby home.  It was so much fun to see them scramble around as we drove up to the fence.  My husband feeds our hens and rooster a snack everyday.  I think these must have that little snack provided by their master too.  As we got out of our vehicle to take the pictures they all started running to the fence as if they were anticipating something or someone.  When they found out that were only there to admire them, they waddled off in the high grass.  So cute to see their feathered behinds running away from us.  This painting is one of several I have finished this month.  You can find it by clicking this link.

Animal Painting of a Goat - Mr. Handsome

Mr. Handsome
14x18 Original Oil Painting
Cheri Wollenberg
Thanks for stopping by.  I am glad to be back and blogging. It has been quite some time since I last posted. A change in my domain caused my blog to be down for a month.  I've painted a lot of paintings during that time, and I'm anxious to share them all with you.  Mr. Handsome is one of the goats I painted from a collection of photos my son took while working in Texas.  He has a customer who has a herd of goats and they are beautiful.  Each goat has a different design quality in texture, color and shape.  This particular goat has three horns...WOW.  The hairs on his chest were flowing in the wind which lent to the composition movement.  He has blacks,browns,sienna browns and ecru whites throughout the design of his face and coat hair. I thought this mustard green made a perfect background for his portrait.  He was a delight to paint, and I look forward to painting others.  This goat painting is for sale here.
