the pecking order

  Title:  THE PECKING ORDER
16 x 20 Mixed Media Collage


The Pecking Order detail mixed media collage

 I have had photos of some pigeons for sometime...they finally made it into my paint.  I love the way they sort of meander in circles, looking at the ground and peck as rapid as possible, trying to beat each other to the bread crumbs that Kayla and Skyler tossed at them.  I love the way some stood  sooo still waiting for the next toss of the crumbs.  I wanted to catch the feeling of the pecking frenzy in the painting.  I wanted the textures to be busy as were the pigeons.  The line work kind of catches the feeling of the short circular paths that they take while pecking away.  All in all I loved painting this, and am ready to do more.


This painting is available for purchase.

NOTE:  I WILL BE POSTING MOST OF MY ART WORK AND CLASS INFORMATION ON THIS SITE AND ARTISAN JEWELRY ON MY OTHER SITE.

Thank you for following.
