It's hard for me to believe that I didn't draw or paint anything for more than a month...but I didn't. I thought about it, I doodled a little, but I never made time. So on New Year's Day, I decided I'd better do something to set the precedent for the rest of the year. Since it's the Year of the Rooster, I found a reference photo and did one of those; but I wasn't terribly satisfied with it, so the next day I did another. There is such infinite variety in roosters, this could go on for a while if I decided to do that--we'll see! So here are Rooster 1 and Rooster 2, and Happy New Year.
