Piece description from the artist

When I moved to the city, I wasn’t expecting to see turkeys far more often than I do back home. A whole flock lives in my neighborhood. This tom was hanging out on the sidewalk one morning in November (unwary of hunters due to blessed gun safety laws) when my boyfriend saw him on his morning run.
