Blue Jay #001

Blue Jay Ornament 001 - Blue on Green - Martha Bechtel - Front bag

The very first blue jay ornament was painted in October of 2018 after one of the birds that hangs around in our yard. I think I managed to capture his cranky awesomeness, although you’ll have to imagine his constant musical cursing at the cardinals. ๐Ÿ˜‚

There’s a bit of snow on his pine perch, but otherwise this little guy is fluffed up against an invisible fall wind.

Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, FolkArt Acrylics (708 Dove Gray, 403 Navy Blue), Craftsmart Acrylics (Denim), and Apple Barrel Acrylics (20210 Turquoise, 20596 Cobalt Blue, 21386 Arbor Green, 20523 Kelly Green, 20530 Wedgewood Green, 20503 White, 20504 Black)
