Two Pigeons

25Apr11

Another study based on pigeons.   24″x 24″  oil on canvas

I find it interesting how pigeons occupy a lot of the same spaces as humans. Are they trying to be like us, or are they just hardwired to prefer the type of environment we make ? I came across a pigeon in a museum once and it was labelled as a”rock dove”.   For the life of me I can’t imagine seeing a pigeon in a completely natural setting.   Even in the middle of rural Nova Scotia, pigeons congregate under the highway overpasses.
