Something to Crow About



I finally got around to painting this guy in color pencils! When we visited Hawaii a few years ago, I was delighted to see lots of hens and roosters roaming around scratching and clawing the earth looking for food. I also have a few photographs and sketches of their cousins from India. Somehow I never got around to drawing or painting them until now. By the way, a rooster can and will crow any time of the day or night -not just at break of dawn. And they cannot crow if they cannot fully extend their necks.
