Roosters with personality are a big part of my watercolors.
To follow the rules my favorite 7 things (to do with art): 1. watercolor tubes 2. beautiful brushes 3. crisp white paper 4. a new set of any art stuff 5. my studio 6. painting 7. taking workshops. Check my links and blog list to see who I would pass this award on to.
