Feed the Birds...

Earlier today I visited Different Strokes from Different Folks and saw the image of the week...a man sitting on a bench reading the paper. 
No one had yet painted it....looking at it I am not at all sure as to why...but the song "Feed the Birds" from Mary Poppins popped into my mind. I was not really a big fan of Mary Poppins as a child....but that one song stuck with me....a bit haunting.

Just as Mary Poppins is a childhood memory, so too was visiting the neighborhood park (Highland Park in Brooklyn) and watching the older folks play board games, sit on the benches feeding the birds, and yes, some actually read books and the paper as in the original image. As a child my eyes were drawn to those either chatting with themselves, or feeding the birds. animals were harmed in any way during the course of this painting ;-) 

While digital art is not to be included among the many lovely paintings that are shown each week....I just could not resist having a quick go at it.
