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.

This painting is not for sale, but a giclee may be ordered upon request.
