2017 is the Chinese Year of the Rooster.
When I lived in San Francisco-a very Asian city, Chinese New Year was a festive and LOUD time of year: think firecrackers, bell ringing, lion dances and exotic parades.
This is a Fire Rooster year. Fire Roosters are traditionally trustworthy, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility at work. The other types are Wood Roosters, Earth Roosters, Gold Roosters and Water Roosters.
On the whole, Roosters are active, amusing, popular, healthy, outspoken, honest, loyal, talkative and charming. Many of my dearest friends are Fire Roosters.
Happy New Year, Roosters-
Since Roosters are also chickens, this post will celebrate these fascinating and delicious animals-among my very favorite to observe and draw.
