Flamingos are very social birds and I’m amazed by their large size and spectacular orange and pink colors.Their long graceful necks and legs remind me of dancers and when they shake their feathers it reminds me even more of some fun expression of dance. So I decided that it would be a great idea to capture that fun feeling in a painting. The flamingo shaking his feathers is my tribute to its great beauty and rhythmic movements.
