ABC Wednesday - R is for Rooster

This Buff Orpington Rooster Rules the Roost!  :-)   These are beautiful chickens. They reside in a locally restored farmstead on the south edge of our town.

The Maasdam family moved here many years ago, originally from Holland.  They raised, showed, and sold Percheron horses.  A small home was moved from town to the site, in the last few years, containing information about the farm enterprise and family displays.  It is also a local Welcome Center.

Such a proud fellow!

It has been my desire to render a drawing or painting of this Buff Orpington Rooster.  And so, I have.
Below is the 1/2-way-along progress.

Now he is finished and on display.

Guarding his hens.
