"Guard Rooster" by Carol Thompson

"Like a prize fighter dancing around the ring, this fellow lowers his head, puffs out his chest and struts stiff-legged to let the world know he is the ultimate 'guard rooster'.”

Artist comment:  "This is one of my earlier pastel paintings.  I was very enthusiastic about the potential of pastel.  In this painting, I 'punched' the limit of painting a white chicken in an impressionistic setting.   My objective was to show the many subtle colors that can be applied and still register as  white  I used soft pastel on bright white 80# cover paper to get the results I was looking for."
