16x20x1.5 Original Oil Painting
Circumstances have kept me from following through on my creative thoughts about new paintings during the last several months. However, my mind never lets up! I see paintings in almost every circumstance and event daily! I live in a rural part of central Oklahoma. It has been terribly hot with hot, forceful winds parching the earth's soil and foliage during the last couple of weeks. The grasshoppers are having a hayday.....that is, until we let our new chickens out to graze!(lol). Recently I was with my husband as we let our lovely poultry crew out to graze. I had to run back to the house to get my camera. It was so hot, but those birds love chasing the grasshoppers. I took loads of photos and this young rooster perked his head up once...beautiful black against the sundown sky. It was really magnificent! I painted him as soon as I could. The painting does not do him or the sunset justice, but it was a delight to do:) He is listed and for sale in my Etsy store. Just click.
