Meet Nate and Glenn

These cute kitties belong to our friends, Rick and Vicki, and were darling subjects for my most recent painting. You can tell that they are besties and enjoy one another’s company.

Are you a cat person or a dog person? I’ve never been a cat owner, but these two sure look sweet and cuddly.

This portrait of a bossy blue jay was a pleasure to paint: so calming and meditative, which is the exact opposite of a blue jay’s personality!

While they are known to be bullies at the feeders, they also “jeer” a loud call in order to track their mates and to warn of impending threats. When that happens, all the birds fly off and take cover.

Hearing their urgent, incessant caws gets our attention, too, and we try to figure out what all the squawking is about. Usually it is a cat or large raptor getting too close for comfort. Blue jays truly are the town criers of the avian species!
