Struttin' his stuff through the farmyard, this glorious rooster knew he was a beauty. He was rockin' and rollin' among his lady-friend hens with all the confidence and appeal of a poultry-version Elvis!!
I discovered him at one of my favorite spots, Old Bedford Village in Bedford, Pa. Decided to dude him up with lots of color to go with his personality for this version. I've done a bit of research, and am not quite sure what his breed is, but the best I can come up with is Golden Welbar, which according to what I've been looking at is considered a Britannic rare breed. If that's the case, what he was doing in the middle of Pennsylvania, USA, is beyond me.
If anyone has better info, I'd appreciate your thoughts. You may not be able to tell from all my fun paint-work, but his chest and under carriage and the back of his tail is the traditional mottled look of the Plymouth Rock. But the golden "mane," (sorry, for want of a better description), and the golden "blanket" that begins about mid back and covers the base of the tail really is brilliant.
I've had a lot of fun with this one and plan to add a couple more versions.
Fine art purchases of this image will not include a watermark, and if I may make a recommendation ... this image will look its very best on the fine art paper choice of "picture rag."
