PPF, Paint Party Friday, White Rooster Painting

Paint Party Friday: PPF, White Rooster Painting:  Acrylic, 9 x 12, Framed

In honor of "International Respect for Chickens Month" I am offering this painting for auction.  This white rooster has textured feathers, comb and wattle, making it look like an oil painting, but it is acrylic with texture medium added to the paint. There is also a coarse sandy texture in the dirt area creating a 3 dimensional look and feel.  It is 9 x 12 painted on masonite with a hand crafted 1 1/2 inch rustic redwood frame, ready to hang. Original, signed by artist.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will be given to Animal Place.  Founded in 1989, Animal Place's California animal shelters fills a much-needed niche of farm animal rescue, sanctuary, education and adoption. Animal Place is one of the largest and oldest animal sanctuaries in the nation. We operate a 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, California, and a 60-acre animal shelter in Vacaville, California. Animal Place extends compassion to all life with a special emphasis on farmed animals. This is executed by providing permanent sanctuary, education, legislation and appropriate placement of needy animals.

Animal Place Sanctuary, Grass Valley, California -  Animal Place's permanent shelter is a northern California tourist destination spot - nestled between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, our 600-acre Grass Valley farm animal shelter is a testament to the beauty of the Sierra Foothills. Visitors are invited to tour the sanctuary on self-guided and guided farm tours. The 300 animals at our refuge are permanent residents.
