Welcome. I m so happy that you stopped by. My home and garden are always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspiration for my art. I am doing well from knee replacement surgery and not yet up to writing a new post. Please excuse me for re-posting another post about painting roosters. Those of you who have been following my blog have probably figured out by now that I love - love blue and white china as well as my blue and white kitchen with Roosters.
Bentley, my Studio Assistant, even has a Rooster bowl to eat out of and likes to hang out in the kitchen in hopes of getting an extra treat!
Yes- more Roosters even on the towels!
In this photo you can see the wall phone above the blue chair. It stopped working and when I took the phone down it left an ugly phone jack. I did not want to make a big hole in the wall and decided to paint two blue and white Roosters to hang on the wall and cover to cover up the phone jack.
Just what the kitchen needs - a few more Roosters!!!!
Photo of the ugly phone jack. I had an old stencil with chicken wire and finally found a use for it. I simply
stenciled it on the canvas and then painted a rooster over it and added some vines and red flowers winding through the chicken wire.
I painted the top Rooster on an 8x8 canvas and the bottom one on a larger canvas so it would fit over the ugly phone jack. I used the same stencil to tie the small painting together - just painted a different Rooster facing the opposite direction.
As you can see I had lots of Rooster inspirations in my kitchen to use.
Roosters - Here - There - Everywhere in my kitchen!

Thank you for stopping by. I sincerely appreciate your prayers, cards, visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who are following my blog. I hope to be back in two weeks with a new blog post and new paintings. In the meantime I am working hard with my daily physical therapy so that I can get back out in my garden and start painting again.
Have a lovely week, Blessings, Erin
