"Florida Rooster" Acrylic Painting by Charlotte Yealey

4x6
Acrylic
I met this guy on a farmette in Florida where the owners were celebrating their 100th year anniversary of operating a farmer's market. The two older Peterson brothers said their grandfather started the business and now they continue to sell fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and milk along with souvenirs and other novelties. The animals were in pens arranged as a petty zoo atmosphere. The roosters seemed very happy with all their hens and this one liked looking at my camera. Just had to paint him.

You can tell by his expression, that this rooster thinks he is the STAR! Great painting, Charlotte.
