2013 is all about patience and this spring I took some time to develop my drawing and watercolor skills a bit. I was looking for a new challenge, and I found a medium I absolutely adore: watercolor.
In May, I went along with Charlotte's class to visit the Brownsville Student Farm Project here in Brooklyn, and this guy is one of Nora's roosters there. On a vacant corner lot, Nora's built raised beds for all kinds of vegetables and her chickens make their home at the back in a sprawling coop. All of the kids were completely taken with the chickens and roosters...and I was, too. There are more of these guys to come!
