Birds in Dresses

Paintings for a limited edition scarf collection, which can be found in my shop.
When I saw them, they reminded me of exotic birds. They wore colourful dresses and mad hats on top of their heads. They also took little steps when walking, their feet stuck inside shiny shoes. Their faces were painted, like masks. They were there to see the horse races.
