Auction for Animal Place

"Cocky"
10x8 oil on canvas
bidding starts at a $1 on Ebay

Some of you who have followed me for a while, know I did a similar auction for Animal Place a couple of years ago. I think I'm ready to paint a few more to help them out again. This is my first painting of one of their residents. I don't think I've done a rooster before but he just happened to catch my eye with his in command demeanor. All of the profit from the sale of this auction goes to benefit Animal Place directly. Learn more about Animal Place with this LINK.

Your title is perfect for this cocky rooster! You've really captured his intense, territorial attitude. Your wonderful colors add to the mood. This one should fly the coop soon!

You captured him beautifully. I love the colors, and the how the motion has been maintained.

Sheila, I just returned from my long travels and getting caught up on my blog friends. You have been busy! I especially like your international commission (I just left Ireland Thursday) and your coastal painting. The rooster is very special, too.

I love the bold and vibrant colors. The loose brushstrokes are free and spontaneous. The painting is exciting with a lot of movement. A fun and beautiful picture.
