There was a flock of chickens at Clo’ and I have never spent any time around such animals.  I drew the rooster, or cockerel with black ink and a Chinese brush. I let the gesture the brush and the movement of the bird create a steadiness in my hand that evolved into a 2 block woodcut print series, many of which I left with new friends in the area as a thank you for their warmth and our time together.
