This painting is done in Latex house paint. I painted it in 2009 while at college. It is 4×5 feet in dimension. It will be purchased by the College of the Ozarks in Branson MO, and hung in the Ralph Foster Museum on Campus as of June 2012. This is my largest framed painting to date! I encourage you to visit it!
I had wanted to paint a picture of sparrows eating fries for a long time, mainly because it intrigued me that these little birds were so adaptable. They were at home in the city, eating human food, even though they are by nature wildlife. It wasn’t until I went to college and started experimenting with perspectives, that I had a breakthrough with the composition and ‘American Sparrows’ happened.
