225 - A Steller's Jay
I decided not to paint a study for today as I got caught up in cleaning the studio. But later in the afternoon, I felt a little guilty for slacking off so I got the brushes out and painted a Steller's Jay. I only need to look out my studio window to see one - they're everywhere. I always associate the noisy Steller's Jays with camping trips. At dawn, they seemed to congregate in the trees over my tent and screech until I got up.
Tomorrow is my granddaughter's birthday so I must go shopping. No painting tomorrow!
