Connie the Steller's Jay

Oil on linen on panel, 8 x 10 inches -- Sold

This is a painting I did as a demo during the Celebration of Western & Wildlife Art Show & Auction last weekend in Puyallup, WA. It was sold at the live auction in the evening. This is based on a photo I took of a young Steller's Jay we rescued after falling out of the nest. We named her Connie, and took care of her until she grew up and started flying around the backyard, while coming back to the house to sleep in the living room at night. It was so much fun to see her around. One day, she never came home for the night. We don't know exactly what happened to her. We sure miss her.
