#242 Beyond my window: Roosters

My bantam rooster
I have raised chickens for years and not only do I enjoy the fresh eggs but 
I always have a model for my drawings, etchings, paintings, and sculpture.

Art is viable when it finds elements
in the surrounding environment.
Our ancestors drew their subject matter 
from the religious attitudes which weighted
on their souls.  We must now learn to draw
inspiration from the tangible miracles around us.
                                               -Umberto Boccioni
