I’m so happy to finish this piece for a friend’s husband, it’s a Christmas gift from her. I started it in early December and I am impressed with myself that I was able to complete it by the 23rd. Just in time for Christmas!

This is another version of an Ayam Cemani, all-black chicken breed.This bird is by far my favorite subject to paint. He is elegant and proud, and so handsome. Painting this rooster was enjoyable, and I think my flowers are improving since earlier this year. I’m definitely focusing more on getting things right, like texture and lighting.

I hope my friends are happy with their new painting and that they enjoy it for many years to come.
