Original artwork description:

With my love of pop art, kitsch, Americana, and birds, it was only a matter of time before flamingos became a subject matter for me. But instead of going for a realistic depiction of nature I couldn't help but paint the popular plastic pink flamingo that has become a feature of lawns and gardens across the world since the 1950s. Being a fan of John Waters must have casually influenced this decision this.

The plastic flamingo itself is depicted in a side view against a classic white picket fence, blue sky, and green lawn. The end result is a bold bright colourful piece that would brighten up any home.

It is painted on a stretched cotton canvas that is ready to hang, and signed on the back as pictured.
