Winter Snack

Winter Snack  10 x 8 oil on canvas board  SOLD
One of my favorite backyard visitors -- winter or summer -- is the Blue Jay.  Big, bold, and devastatingly handsome, they're a visual delight.  This little oil sketch was fun from start to finish. 


  1. I like the way you made the head the focus by using the contrast of light and dark. Very nice Helene!

  2. Thank you, Kaethe. I'm pleased you like it. Your "Side Tie Reflection" is another great marina painting, and you managed to capture so much in only 7x7!
