The Boss

SOLD
On our recent trip to Nova Scotia we visited That Dutchman's Cheese Farm in Upper Economy. It sits high on a hill overlooking the Bay of Fundy and they have walking trails and an array of animals including chickens, roosters, turkeys, emus and even peacocks! Fabulous. We watched them make the cheese and of course sampled some and came home with a few wedges. It is a blissful place.
This painting is for the Girls Just Wanna Paint monthly challenge the theme of which is Fin, Fur or Feather. This fabulous white rooster had all the hens chasing after HIM!!
