A rooster next to a cocktail
Rooster Tail
8 x 10

I’ve taken to reading an old paperback bartender’s guide as bedtime reading and dog-earing corners of drinks that remind me of animals I would love to paint. One of the first I tagged was a rooster tail. Because, my husband reminds me, “Chickens are decent people.

The term cocktail is disputed. Some people say it's because the first few drinks were stirred with a feather from a rooster's tail.

This painting is part of my Animal Spirit series. Spirits can be ghosts or the liquid containing ethanol and water that is distilled. Animal spirits can be guides to understanding personality or the future. Or, in this case, Animal Spirits are drinks associated with an animal, feathered, finned, scaled, or furred.
