Strutting His Stuff - colorful rooster oil painting by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

8X6 Oil on Board $125
Includes shipping and insurance US
Had some leftover paint from another project and just couldn't resist paintings this cocky fellow. Roosters, by their structure, just naturally strut when they walk. Might have something to do with keeping that tail up and waving properly in the air.
Our current rooster is by far the kindest we have ever had. I have been very careful to remain quiet around him and NOT antagonize him. In the past I have found it amusing to "box" with them as they grow - but once they get their spurs, it's not longer fun to be having to watch your back every time you walk across the yard! Out last rooster would come from 100 feet away just to get in the first lick. He has since been relocated. The current flock leader is watchful, as a rooster needs to be, but follows me for food, not sparing practice. And when he finds food, he clucks to his hens to come and get it - always looking out for them first. Right now he's missing most of his tail feathers and some body feathers off his back. I suspect he's been in a scrap - perhaps he even risked his life for the ladies. Sometimes I wish he could talk....
Romans 12:13
Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Wonderful in every way. Love the colors, the painterly style and the fact that he is looking away. Very nice
