Chateau Coq Gallic
This is the 2nd in my series of vintage poster paintings. I want to do a few more of these and see what people think about them. I know I sure enjoy painting them! Anyway, this one is titled "Chateau Coq Gallic". I started out knowing I wanted to do a rooster poster/painting after I completed the Bulldog and for some reason unknown to me, I knew I wanted the text to be French in some way. As I was designing it and thinking about what I wanted to be the title, I found out that coincidentally, the Rooster, and specifically, the Coq Gallic is the un-official symbol of France! (click here to read more about this.) What a happy coincidence. Love when things like this happen! So, I named it Chateau Coq Gallic, which translates the Castle of the Gallic Rooster. So, this is what I came up with.. I included pictures of it framed and un-framed. It is currently hanging in Art Plus Gallery in W. Reading, PA. Enjoy!
