Concrete Dreams

By
On Facebook I asked my watchers to come up with a two-word phrase, and I would choose two of those phrases to base a painting off of.  This was one of those phrases - "Concrete Dreams". A common pigeon dreams of not-so-common things.

Watercolor on cold-press paper, 6X6 inches.

The dreaming bird just looks like one of theese. By the way it's beautiful.

This is absolutely beautiful!  I love how the picture is of the pigeon sleeping, yet it has the dandelion crown and bottlecap necklace on, as if its dreams are becoming reality.  I am fascinated by that kind of supernatural effect, and I love pigeons; this painting is a perfect blend of the two.  Furthermore, the feather texture and shading are exquisite!  Amazing work!

I have very much enjoyed looking through your gallery but something about this humble bird has captured my heart. There is a simple sweetness to her along with great dignity and style. Thank you! Hug

This is really really cool and awesome. The bottle caps, the dandelions... I love it.

You really captured the fluffiness of the pigeon's feathers. Very nice!
Oh, I love the urban gems and flowers--PERFECT for a city pigeon! You've always got something new and surprising for us, showing us the world in a new way.

Aw, thank you. I've been kind of fighting with feelings of a lack of uniqueness to my work lately.

I love this so much! :D They look like a character out of a show, or a book! A pigeon that a character would meet who dreamed of becoming ruler, or perhaps they are already ruler of their pigeon flock, I love the necklace of bottlecaps and the crown of weeds, I actually think the dandelions look like a really nice crown, haha!

This is why I asked your roommate for his bottlecap :B I wasn't being a trash-hoarder, I needed it for art reference!

(ok maybe it's a little bit of a self-portrait)
