Etsy Fave Item of the Day - Why did the ostrich cross the road?

Probably to get a latte

If you don't know me personally, you should probably know now that I am terrified of birds. Hysterically scared of birds.  Ostriches even more so.  All alien, dino looking and huge.  As a child, an ostrich (or was it an emu?) ate my Keds while I was on a trampoline.  More like trapped on a trampoline, because about 4 or 5 of them surrounded me taunting me.  How does this type stuff always seem to happen to me?

Annnnnyways, even with all that, I love this painting!  I love the street lines with the shadow.  I love the textures on the ostrich.  I can feel the story of this mega-bird.  He knows where he's going, why are you asking?  That's the attitude I get from him at least.  This original painting by revampedart on Etsy is sized at 8x10 and you can view it for sale by clicking here.
