September 2014 Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta

Rise and Shine
It's Day #3 of Leslie Saeta's September 2014 - 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.

For today, I wanted to try my hand at painting a Rooster.  Roosters are so colorful and I LOVE using lots of color when I paint.

"Rise and Shine" was painted using acrylics on a 5 x 7 canvas board.  I also used a tool for applying sgraffito designs.

It's already day #3 and I'm scrambling to keep up!  Wish me luck as we have 27 more days to go.

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.
