Original Bantam Rooster Chicken Chinese Zodiac Painting! 1st Tuesday Art Prints & ACEO Prints! January Sketches...



"Cocky Rooster" Original 5"x7" Painting on Panel here

This week my featured painting is "Cocky Rooster," an original bantam rooster chicken painting.  The year of the rooster is starting on January 28th...  This is this year's painting inspired by the Chinese New Year Zodiac animals.  This original animal painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!  The art has a realist impressionist feel and the original painting has some texture on the crest... 


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is Chinese New Year Zodiac animals, you may see them here.

I haven't yet painted every animal of the Zodiac and one of my Western dragons has snuck in, but it is a project I am working on slowly...  Some of these animals I've painted more of than are indicated in this grouping, they may be found on my website; with some available as originals and prints, with some only as prints...

The Featured Image "Cocky Rooster" is a new release and is available as bonus print auctions...

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She gazes upwards, her elegant hair adorned with flowers.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January.  This is from day 23.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a columbine.  These flowers are so delicate and pretty...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
