Winter's Coming

WINTER'S COMING - 12 X 16 - $245 Matted & Unframed
My little Stellar Jay is finished and ready to fly.  He seems to have lots of life and really looks like he is ready to grab those bits of seeds on the stump, chitterling away, telling everyone they are for him.  Camp Robbers is common name used for the jays as they hang around camp and are ready to grab anything editable at a moments notice. He certainly looks like he is ready to grab and run!!
This scene is part of what I love about the West Coast forests: the lush greens in hundreds of different shades, the soft puffy mosses layered over the branches and trees like a coat of snow, the ferns spiky swords woven amongst the stumps and bushes, and the firs and cedars towering over everything.   My favourite place to walk!!
Enjoy my Stellar Jay.

Wendy - this is a lovely painting. We have blue jays here. They too are a beautiful bird to see. Hope you have a great day.

Thanks Debbie. Our jays are good city dwellers as well as in the forest. It is nice to see them at our feeder as the remind me of our summer holidays.
