Oh the joy of releasing a tune.... not sure these work but they were fun trying.

The background on the yellow one with green spots is acrylic with drips.

Barb C&C Please.... Each are about 8" x 10"

These guys are great Barb! As always, you have managed to depict such vibrant energy! I like the drippy background - it works!

Dramatic and colorful, Barb. I love them!

Thanks - that's good because they are my least favorite... I figure however that you can't please all the people all the time. And.... what I don't like someone else may enjoy. Quick art work for the Garage Sale Wall in my studio!

I love them Barb!

Lots of energy, lots of color! And the drips in the background are great!

Barb, very nice, i see you have the same problem i get. i have some that i think came out great and some so so. I tend to find the ones i think are so so are the one that sell more then the ones i think came out great. go figure.

Chicken opera! I think you're on to something.

I really like that first one Barb. He looks like a real crooner.

Zing up Pavarotti's eye, and lighten that ground on the first on for me... I like his cocky head and attitude. Maybe some yellow-orange bits on the comb up top.

Sorry, #2 just ain't cuttin' it for me. Please forgive me...uh, I shouldn't even say it...well...okay, forgive: the green looks like something coming out of her mouth! Poor thing! (ducking and running, 'cause others liked it...)

Love your animals, Barb, you know I do!

:clap: Really imaginative and expressive! Love them----Do you have Roosters of your own?? I used to and I got a kick out of them, these remind me of how they were! Most anyone would love one of these cocky fellows hanging in their home!

First one does it for me. He IS in CONTROL!!! I think he's calling all his girlfriends to come home!!!

Nice work, Barb

So many comments to reply to.

I just want to get one of those mouths big... I may have to really enlarge these pieces into something grander! LOL

Deborah, I agree the weakest of the two (and I personally find them both weak) is the second one.

I'm thinking I need to put them into context... ie: time for an interesting background.

Anyway - I'm babbling. NO... I don't have roosters or chickens - but I like visiting them and getting to watch them.

So... happy painting in the dust everyone. I'm off to prepare for another show or two.
