Mean Rooster

 

If you are a country kid, you likely remember a mean rooster.

They are beautiful bullies. If you've ever been spurred, you'll never forget it. My most recent rooster was named Major. He was beautiful, multi-color (mostly copper/red) A brave leader, but he detsted the sight of humans. I was always shooing him out of my Thai Peppers. He enjoyed eating the VERY HOT peppers, and foliage. The coyotes got him. Maybe a bobcat. I know for a fact he didn't go without one hell of a fight. My latest painting is created in Major's honor... the mean little bass-turd.

I came across a Pinterest page featuring the Royal Ballet of London's performance of the "Tale of Jeremy Fisher."  The images of the coloured botanical backgrounds, water plants, trout, water beetle and, of course, a frog named Jeremy  are absolutely enchanting.
