The Brooklyn Bridge: a poetic marvel of brawny architecture, engineering, and ingenuity. And perched on it: a bird of vague pedigree, that would be roughly the size of a townhouse. Like the title says, he’s big. He’s bad. He’s Brooklyny. Let’s not think about the size thing too much, though. Let’s think about the sandhogs, those men who helped build this bridge. And let’s have a moment of silence for the Sweathogs, too. Brooklyn’s own Sweathogs.
I’m doing an original work [almost] every day this month. 30 of ‘em in 31 days. The theme for December is birds. All kinds of birds.
An original piece every day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new one. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.
Any birds you’d like to see painted? Let me know. Recent suggestions include an the first robin of spring, a the American Kestrel, a blue-footed boobie, and all the feathered denizens of “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
Yesterday’s bird: “Drink, Flamingo”
