Bird House.  oil on birch panel 37.5"x 25.5" (1998)

The genesis for this painting was sparked by the artist’s visit to his daughter’s apartment in New York City. Gazing out from her balcony, he constructed imaginary life stories, unraveling on the stacked balconies in front of him. All the balconies suggest separate existential lives which the pigeons have the clearest view.
