Free Art Friday
I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures that we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These free art birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be too, they also want to go home. So if you happen across one of these stray birds, take them in and they will love you always.. .. ../ .. /.//./ .

On opening night there was a painting that if i had of had 6 of they would have all sold, funnily enough it was the one i was least concerned about showing, it was ‘Trembling On High Wires’.
Such was peoples pigeon lust that the past couple of days i have been spurred to paint more and more pigeons.. .. . Supply and demand, selling out or just giving people what they want. .. . call it what you will as long as i’m still painting everything else seems trivial .. … .. …. . . /. / .
