California Blue Jay
Yesterday I met with a friend for a chat on her deck and these two blue jays came to the table and we gave them pieces of crackers. She said they come all the time. They were so friendly and gorgeous that I was inspired to paint one. She lives less than a mile from my house, but I guess the Jays don't come here because of my cats. The mocking birds come because they aren't a bit afraid of cats. They love to taunt and torment them. Hey! That gives me an idea for tomorrow's painting. 5" x 7" original oil on recycled cardboard. $20 includes shipping.
