Amsterdam is the city where I was born. When I created this painting I had been living abroad for over 10 years, long enough for my home country to start becoming new again. Long enough for me to start noticing those little, everyday things, that are so normal that you've never noticed how -beautiful they are. I try to go back to Holland at least once a year and on one of these trips my moms took me on a tour of my city of birth, it was like seeing it for the first time. As in any big city there's always pigeons around and I'm always amazed at how bold these birds are, especially when there's food around! They're not scared of people and they'l always wait until the last second to get out of the way of an approaching street car!
