I finished it today! I put it off for so long until I just decided to do it anyway and get it done. He's about 6' tall and on the end of mu chicken house facing the road.

That is magnificent! You are going to have traffic tie-ups on your road. Also, seeing a 6' rooster will probably discourage predators!

Thanks everyone! LOL! I hope he discourages predators!

I'm hoping it will generate some mural work for me :-)
He has been planned since last fall, I just haven't had time since it warmed up enough to paint, with planting and landscaping and all. I collected the outdoor paint all winter at the Habitat for Humanity Restore and freecycle. The only colour I had to buy at the store was bright red.

I've had a week's vacation this week and have gotten a lot of things done, including this guy.

Runningtrails, that is so spectacular!! That is like straight out of a painting! You are soooo talented!! I hope you get some offers to do more painting! Way cooler than "Mail Pouch Tobacco" signs on barns, lol!!

Excellent colors, you really captured the sheen on the tail feathers perfectly! Bravo!!!

Girl you are the BOMB! I love it. I knew it was going to be good but never imagined it would be that good!!
What kind of rooster is that?

That was well worth the wait!

RE: Chicken coop mural

Fabulous work!!! I would love to be so talented. Unfortunately I am not. I did paint the inside of my chicken palace blue and then stenciled insects and worms on the walls. It was kind of a joke on my husband as he thinks I spend way too much time with the chickens. It didn't get much of a rise from him, so I bought a metal chandelier from Habitat and hung it from the ceiling. It doesn't work, but oh what fun I have had!

Wish you lived here, I would hire you in a heartbeat. Beautiful work.

Thanks so much guys! It was a lot of fun!
I don't know what kind of rooster it is, if it is a "kind". Its an adaptation of a pic from the internet. It doesn't have to be a real rooster. It's just make believe.

LOL! Southern_magnolia, sounds very interesting inside!! A chandelier!

I am always a bit over the top! I will try later to post photos of my chicken runs. They have a partial tin roof and the remainder is covered with wysteria. Looks nice, but more importantly, it keeps the odor down from my baby ducks and geese.

RE: Chicken coop mural

Beautiful! I hope you create like this for a living...?

I was going to be a smart aleck and say something like, "Wow, what a beautiful, enormous co--"

Couldn't do it. :)

It has such soft color, it looks like you did it in pastels. Way to recycle the paint!

ROFL! Velvet, oh my! I don't think anyone around here has thought to say that yet. lol. I'm sure it's coming though.

Southern_magnolia, I loved it! The whole idea of a fancy chicken house with chandelier is marvelous! I don't think its "over the top". I think its great, creative genius! You're giving me some ideas here...

I don't paint for a living, unfortunately. I wish I could. I have a full time "day job" in an office. I was on vacation this week. I do make a bit selling paintings and pet portraits, but not nearly enough to live on.

RE: Chicken coop mural

the reason I asked what breed this rooster is because he looks amazingly like a grown up and more colorful version of one of my chickens. It is supposed to be a hen but I think its a rooster

The link below is not a good photo but mines has all the colorings just like your painting!

Anyway you are a fantastic painter. You capture the true spirit of anything you paint and draw. I don't understand why you are not famous yet. Have you ever thought of selling your work and the local festivals (in your town)?

Runningtrails, BRAVO, BRAVO! It's great and I am jealous. I wish you lived closer I would really love something done on my coop and on my barn - I have no talent of that nature whatsoever! I love it!
