#11 Study of Two Pigeons

8" x 10" mixed media on watercolor paper

This is Beetle (on the right) and Robert on the railing of our porch right outside from where I paint. I tried to capture them being sweet with each other. This is the same porch that I have the large cage from which I nursed her back to health.  I keep the cage door open and put food in there once a day.  They both go in to eat and then hang out throughout the day on the railing.  I have read that pigeons mate for life but that must only be in the complete wild as I have seen otherwise in our flock.
