Definitely
I have used the original photo for a Christmas card, but a painting is much nicer.

Would be great as a Christmas card - I would think you could make good money producing greeting cards in general

Clava, would you be cool with that?
I mean having it scanned and printed for Christmas cards? the photo is simply wonderful and if I could paint larger, I'd have done the whole thing. All the photos from your photo shoot are adorable.

Wow, I can never really paint, I am better with a pencil or charcoal - You're amazing!

rooster

I have always loved roosters, so I'd like to try and paint this one in watercolor.

finshed, except for a simple background

gotta put a very simple background. I realize that his feet are too short, too. but, I love the way the tail feathers came out. I got online to look at how Rhode Island Red's tails look. the photo is very dark , so it's hard to see the undertones of iridescence. and iridescense is very hard to paint.
