There's Something About Roosters

I love to collect them and I love to paint them.  So I knew that I wanted to paint on another cupboard door for my show next week, and what better choice?!





My newest love--Rangers Distress Crackle Paint--in every distress ink color!


And you HAVE to have the layers!




And while I'm on the subject--this is one my favorite roosters from my collection. And guess where I found him?--Yep, that's right--a garage sale!


I love him--he's nice and tall too--about 12 inches.  See, you never know what you'll find at a garage sale.

I forgot how much I enjoy painting roosters.  I hope everyone liked my rooster , because there's more on the way.

There is something about them, they get one's attention with their brightness and personality.
People love them. I really like your found rooster, have never seen that design before. Your painting on the door is wonderful Diane. I bet your busy getting ready again. Also I am fond of the crackle, husband does not understand that, he thinks things should be smooth.

Have a nice Holiday weekend. I am going to see garden ant and other art at a sale put on by a guild Friday. Wish you were there.

The rooster painting is just gorgeous. I love roosters, as well. My mother-in-law adores them. They are just so beautiful and majestic. I really like the one you found at a garage sale - it's so unique! Have a great day! Theresa

I surely loves him, Diane,
he looks so sweet, and the colors are fantastic, as is the checkerboard pattern- just how big is this piece,I wonder?
Your red rooster is great.
Hugs,Dorthe

Beautiful! What harmony the way the picture and frame come together! You say the Ranger Crackle Paint comes in different colors? And can be applied to different surfaces? I'm currently in a crackle paint experimentation phase and have not, as yet, tried Ranger. Thanks for sharing!
