A patterned poulet.
This is one of the very first paintings I did as a character study for Madame Poulet and Monsieur Roach, by Dianne de Las Casas, published by Pelican Publishing. This is a New Orleans folk tale about a hard working chicken and a roach that likes to party. Very fun book. I ended up changing the landscape to New Orleans so the barn got axed for a row house.
