Blue Jay

blue jay16″ x 20″, Acrylic on canvas, 2011

This was a commissioned piece, a friend of mine wanted a painting of a bird for her aunt and it just so happens my father loves birds as well. I decided to paint the blue jay because they would be in front of my parents house at the time feeding from the bird feeders. I`m no Robert Bateman but I think I did pretty good. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
