This is a special Monday's Beast. Roo Roo was a well loved rooster I owned until he died a few years ago in a hawk attack. That day, in my sadness and confusion, I took him to the transfer station, carefully wrapped in plastic. That was a mistake that I will always regret. He deserved better. I should have a least thought to bury him. I did however write an obituary for him the day he died and sent it off to all the friends I could think of who might have known him or at least cared to know that I had lost someone important to me. Now I have finally done him one better and made him a little creative tribute. This painting is really a tribute card of Roo Roo made for my new group art project called BeastField.Com.
You too can remember an animal friend and place them in the BeastField of well loved and carefully remembered animals friends. Please check out the BeastField.Com website and learn how to submit an entry of your own to the BeastField.
