An art print of my sold original oil painting of pigeons enjoying the flowing fountain waters at Krakow's Rynek Glowny Square, Poland. 2006.
When I painted the piece, the feel was just so strong that made it easy. The scene was from a visit to Krakow's Rynek Glowny Grand Square, the largest medieval town square in Europe. The pigeons were so much a part of the hustle and bustle of this lovely place. I especially like how they sat around the fountain enjoying the cool flowing waters, a parallel congregation to us happy human beings also gathered at this great square conversing, relaxing, observing, idling or generally enjoying the life and great atmosphere here.
The way the pigeons positioned at this rounded fountain also reminds me of an audience listening intently at a concert arena, except in this case they are attending a "fountain symphony" with music courtesy of the rhythmic white waters. With so much feel, the colours just came naturally that I can't even explain my method, if there was one at all. Perhaps they are an expression of the music that I imagined the pigeons were listening to.
