Rainy Days & a Rooster

 

In the Loire Valley where I grew up, the skies of the countryside in November are gray and the colors are soft. This is the feeling I wanted to capture in this painting: a muted rooster with a comfortable sense of ennui. Fall is here and we are taking refuge in our homes, lingering by the fireplace. Whether it be in France or New England, the feeling is the same. To connect the background and rooster to this story, I played with texture. The wrinkled tissue paper sealed on the canvas perfectly renders the rainy November skies, and the warmth of the muted rooster's feathers evokes comfort. The colorful stamps also relate to the rooster, and remind of the link between dreary but comfortable autumn days in France and the US.

What does your November feel like?
