Waiting Out the Rain

Waiting Out the Rain 20"x20" acrylic on canvas

My husband loves to feed the birds!  This winter we have accumulated a flock of about 36 Eurasian collared doves.... or ring-neck doves.  They are the most beautiful shades of lavender-grey with a blush of pink.  This pair was fluffed up and waiting out a cold rain after a hearty breakfast of cracked corn, oats and sunflower seeds.  I feel like these doves in the winter, just longing for spring and warmer, sunnier weather.

Email me if you would like to give this pair of doves a warm and cozy home.
