Inspired by some other pigeon art, I set out to paint my own.
I painted this little guy on canvas board with acrylic paint. I found the frame for $1 at a yard sale. $1!!! Score!
Here it is in the corner, with my new hanging lamp (post about that forthcoming).
He makes me happy. I think he needs a name. I may also paint him a friend yet… Obviously I need lots and lots of bird art. More bird art!
Also, I had an idea that may already exist. If it exists, someone please let me know. I would like to exchange some of my original art with someone else’s original art. I desperately want original art by some other artists, but I cannot afford to buy it, and I think there is too much of my own art in my apartment. Does some sort of art swap exist? If anyone is interested in an art swap and in the DC area, please reach out!
For the love of pigeons and art and pigeon art,
Great duck and pigeon upgrades! For Mr. Pigeon, I can imagine a little female sticking only her head and neck out from behind the right side frame. Maybe even wearing a little feathery fascinator, or a more modest hat of some sort.
Thanks, Madeline! I like the idea of a fascinator.
Happier than carrot cake? I may make myself one for my birthday and I would gladly invite you over to help me eat it. However, I am writing about your painting. Have you tried to contact a local artist’s society? Happy painting!
That’s a good idea. I’ll look into that!
