Green Jay Saint by ursulav Green Jay Saint by ursulav

Among the birds I saw on my recent trip to Texas, the Green Jays were one of the most effortlessly spectacular. I have honestly never met a member of the jay clan that wasn’t ridiculously beautiful, but the Green Jays were just incredible, almost luminous. So of course I had to paint one.

Not a saint I’m likely to encounter in my garden, but a marvelous one all the same.

6 x 12 mixed media on board

Prints available.

I love your artwork, but one thing that always strike me is the hatching. It's really intricate and spotless. Love it!

You know, I had to google because I couldn't believe we'd have such a pretty bird under the Jay family that wasn't blue- and these suckers are Gorgeous! Almost reminds me of the goldfinches before they're fully green.. they kind of have a limey look to them.

As usual, beautiful and colorful. Well done!

*Angelic Choir* So Lovely! But, you know what's not fair? It's that I live in Texas & have my whole life & have yet to see one of these gorgeous birdies in person! :hmm: I guess I'm in the wrong part. :shrug:
Well, I can enjoy this anyway, and then there are photos. :meow:

More fun even than Stellar's jays!  I love the bright colors on the birds themselves; you caught it here marvelously.
