I am a pastel painter. I chose this medium because of its immediacy and lightness. Pastel allows you freedom to build a richness of color in a single sitting that I did not find in any other kind of painting. It is the purest pigment in a soft medium that can still give you hard edges while maintaining its beautiful fluidity of expression.

"Barnyard Kings" (5" x 7")
Apparently roosters are very social and are often friendly with other roosters. They also like to perch in a high place that allows them to oversee the barnyard so they can keep an eye on the females and anything else going on. One of the websites I visited to read about the birds says that her chickens will get up on a pail if there's nothing else just to get a "birds eye" view of things. I also found an answer to the age old question: "What came first....the chicken or the egg?" Answer is "the rooster".
