About the piece:
I took the photo reference for this painting on a trip to Italy.  The ubiquitous pigeons were always willing models.  This trio seemed to be waiting in the shadows for the action to begin.  I found it an irresistible subject matter. The chiaroscuro is striking; the intense sunlight creates even deeper shadows.
