The "Long Island Rooster" Story
Long Island RoosterPainted in 04 / 2010
8" x 10" - Acrylic on Canvas

Long Island Rooster is a story of people caught between two lives mixed with lofty expectations not always attainable. The painting is obviously telling a story of a loving couple who loses, but later learns to accept each other as they are and not as they imagined. Here the artist explores the intricacies via illustration of the story in a more allegorical themed setting. The beautiful views of the many inlets and harbors of Long Island in the summer serve as a backdrop to the fun and flavor of the rooster, and his baby chicks.

The fabulous colors pull you into the inviting scene. It’s a puzzle what is happening? It’s a feast in mystery and exploration. The players in the painting have stepped back and have presently attained the perspective they didn’t have originally. The story in the painting is also a play against have, and have not‘s. The distance between the man and woman in the painting shows how they are at opposites. The rooster is older and wiser, and the woman, playing with the chick, is younger and more relaxed in more childish games than with herself.

The rooster pictured is a symbol of a powerful, dominant, man who put his house in order after a bewildering relationship with the lady playing with a hoop and chicken. The woman did not think her life was exciting; so she created some imaginary stories about her life which drove the rooster, and the man away. Playing chicken didn’t work out.
