Cher Ami

6"x8" oil on panel. Framed in a natural maple with black inset, floater frame.


Here is a smaller painting I did over the weekend. Warming up my painting muscles for the large ones I need to work on.

Cher Ami was the first war pigeon during WW1. I have no idea if this looks anything like the bird named Cher Ami. I just thought that was interesting. :)

  1. I don't either Cathy, but my grandfather was in charge of messenger pigeons in his area during WW1 and when the war was over he was allowed to bring them home with him. As a little girl I remember always seeing his birds when we went there. You nailed some pigeon here though.
