Artwork Description

When painting out-of-doors, there are many hazards to an impending masterpiece that artists resign themselves as having to put up with- wind, rain, and curious onlookers to name a few. However, as Ella the Monsterette set up her easel in a breezy back-alley in Rome, the telltale ruffling of feathers alerted her to a much more insidious danger- the hazard of perching pigeons above. Ella had suffered the harsh critiques of pigeons marring her other canvases, and she knew this would not do. The rotund little monster picked up her art materials and shuffled off to the end of the alley, where the light was best and the avian dangers scarce.
Soon enough, the pigeons followed her, hoping for scraps. As the wind picked up, smallclothes and leaves flying
through the air, Ella sighed. Perhaps her masterpiece could wait another day.

Oh yes, the underwear. All I know about that is it can't possibly be Ella's, or else she's in serious denial.
Thanks for the comment!
