A Rooster Parade!
My first rooster...a Puerto Rican rooster from Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. Have you ever felt you had to paint something or write something? Well, I did recently. For about the last month, I have had roosters show up everywhere. First it was the noisy one in Villas del Faro in Maunabo, very similar to the one below. Then I saw one at church, a city cousin of this one which posed perfectly still for me. Then I went to the hospital, Auxilio Mutuo Hospital, and lo and behold, another rooster crossed my path. I started to wonder. After that I was driving with my daughter Rosita through Maunabo and this beautiful black and white rooster crossed the street in front of us. It was gorgeous. Then one day as I was driving home from the hospital I took la Calle San Jorge in Santurce and there in the middle of a very busy city street this elegant rooster crossed my path! That was enough! Five roosters for goodness sake! Five!!!!! I think I am supposed to paint a rooster or two. Below was my first attempt. There will be more. Be watching for them. I think I will go a paint another one now!
