The link between Charleston, SC and Pigeons

WIP: "Charleston Roof Top ( Rock Pigeons ),"  Oil on prepared 1/2 maple panel, 24 x 36   Detail image of concrete finial, 2nd layer of color applied. My current painting on the easel is quickly coming to completion. “Charleston Rooftop (Rock Pigeons)” is a medium to large piece (for me) measuring 24x36 inches. I will share in a future post when the piece is done the narrative behind the painting but for now I am writing about the subject(s) and the habitat that I have placed them in.   Detail image of one of the pigeons and green decorative scallops, 2nd layer of color applied . My subject(s) for this painting as with many of my pieces are birds, and in this piece Pigeons seem to fit the environment perfectly. It was the buildings unique cornice work, gable and roof lines that caught my attention and not the birds, the birds were added later. This particular roof top as the name implies is from beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. I love visiting


My latest audio book fix! 11/22/63 by Stephen King My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is one of the best story that I have listened to in a while! I will definitely be going back down the rabbit hole and listening to this one again and probably a couple more times. ** I Listen to my books while working at the easel painting, this one was read by Craig Wasson. I found him a little boring in the beginning but he grew on me and he really worked a portraying the characters with different voices and personalities. Fantastic story and great listen!!
