Parisian Pigeon, 16" x 12"

This was kind of a quirky composition I put together. In Paris, I had taken lots of scenery photos, but had also taken one of this pigeon whose appearance I had thought was very distinctive. However, the original setting for the bird was not a particularly exciting one, so I decided to place it in the context of a more attractive view for my painting. The piece turned out to be sort of unusual, but fun I thought! I especially enjoy the way the sky mimics the pigeons colors.
