Today, during my neighborhood walk, I came across an unexpected "mini-farm". it is not every day that you see a huge turkey in someone's yard! It stopped me in my tracks! A woman came out of her house to tell me that I was welcome to visit closer if I wanted. Ok! I took some photos and asked (gingerly)..."You're not going to eat your turkey....are you?" --"oh, no way", she replied, "he's a pet and very friendly. He loves to show off for the passersby". Well. Yeah. I see that.
Her "Red Jungle" rooster was similarly show-y..... and I knew he'd make an excellent subject for today's painting.
