"Don Juan" by Astrid Paustian
Pastel, 19"x 15", matted and framed to 24" x 20", $325.-
I painted this rooster about a year ago. It seemed a fitting subject to post while on vacation in Kauai with my husband. What a beautiful place! Of course we are enjoying the tropical vegetation and wonderful beaches, but there are roosters and chickens everywhere! They do take a toll on our sleep because the roosters crow at all hours.
They are a beautiful sight though, and I am having fun doing sketches and taking many photos.
Other favorite subjects to paint here are the ocean, sunsets, tropical flowers and birds.
While on vacation, I am doing many sketches and watercolor studies. Posting these is difficult and may have to wait until after our return.
