The rooster was for an old high school friend of mine that had knee surgery and was having a challenging time during her recovery. She is a lover of all things chicken so I painted the rooster to cheer her up. When displayed on a white surface the colors are very vivid and strong but when displayed in the window on a bright sunny day (see rooster below) it looked a little washed out. The photo of the ladybug and dandelion in the window was taken on a rainy day so the colors were not washed out by the intense sunlight.
