Birds: paintings

"Steller's Jay and Dragonfly" (2018): by artist Jolanta Lapiak.
Oil painting on 16"x16" wood panel.
Collector: SLIAO (Sign Language Interpreting Associates Ottawa Inc.), Edmonton region.

The Steller's Jay is a jay native to western North America, closely related to the blue jay found in the rest of the continent. The painting was inspired by one of my college-day acquaintances -- Ken Irving's photographs of the Steller's Jays.

Oil painting on 24"x20"x wood panel.

A beautiful and elegant bird with multi-colored plumage.
