I first met Baron Dixon at the Chartreuse Gallery’s “Cats & Guitars” show in January, this year.

His painting there, “Light on the Anchovies,” was a favorite, with its beautiful details and excellent execution.

I asked if he had his art online, and in looking over his Fine Art America site, discovered he had a chicken painting! This is exactly the kind of fun surprise that inspires me to blog about chickens and chicken art. They really do seem to be everywhere, and it’s fun to see different artists’ interpretations of these beautiful birds.
I asked about the piece and here’s what Barron said:
“That rooster belonged to my grandparents next-door neighbors, but he loved hanging out at my family’s house. I was able to get right up in his face with my Pentax K-1000 camera when I took the photo for that painting.”
