Robert the Tap Dancing Rooster
After six weeks of painting with Painstaking Exuberance entirely in the world of Fractured Glass, I needed a break.
And what a break! Today, through Pass the Baton, I booked some "Alternative Careers" and "Professionalism Has Attached" programs, and then I painted a rooster.
Meet my new Small Friend, Robert The Tap Dancing Rooster. Because tap dancing 'til 2 a.m. annoyed the hens and cut into his ability to crow at dawn, he was banished from the hen house. He has landed in my studio. Except for attacking the paint brushes while I worked on Robert's portrait, my cats have ignored him.
Robert will appear on a note card and in a small (6x9") print. He and the now completed 22x33" Fractured Glass #3 will be on the nanoscape website next week.
