I love this oil painting on canvas board of a rooster overseeing his hens eating scratch. It is an older piece; Picassoesque if you will and I think they had to have drawn this out before painting because it would have been too complex to paint otherwise. I never used to like 'modern art', but have become a big fan in the past few years.If you click on the painting, you can see the signature and date. Does anyone know if I made a great buy; enough to sell the farm and get a facelift, boob job (from a DD down to an A cup) and a tummy tuck? OR, maybe meet and take all my bloggy friends on a trip around the world? And then when we get back, have enough left to start an animal sanctuary and zoo? My life would be complete.


  1. Hey Girl,
    Love your photos on the side bar.
    I collect rooster items.
    My Boy Friend is cheeky when he says I am hooked on the cock! LOL

  2. I love Picasso and I love this painting. Have you done any research on the artist? I keep dreaming of finding something by some little known artist that is worth a fortune! A girl can dream can't she?

  3. Looks like you solved your problem with uploading photos. Yeah! I like this painting. I have a few rooster & hen prints and figurines, of course!

  4. Yes, I'm tired of the rain too. I'm so ready for some sun and warmth. Can't decide if I want the heat or A/C.
