Violet, portrait of a Birmingham Roller Pigeon. Multiple tones of purple, black, and deep gray give this painting depth and intensity. Careful details outline individual feathers and reveal the expressive face of this beautiful pigeon.
Violet was taken in by Palomacy Pigeon and Dove Adoptions after she was left with weakened legs from a spinal injury. Her recovery has been very slow. Contact me to commission a portrait of your own bird.
This painting was exhibited at the American Pigeon Museum & Library.
