Communication & Expression (Day 12)

“I quote others in order to 
better to express myself.” 
~ Michel de Montaigne

Alcohol Inks and Watercolor on Yupo paper


I'm busy getting ready for my painting demonstration tomorrow at the regional art center and I couldn't help but start thinking about my feathered friends, the Blue Jays. I admire and respect their wonderful communication skills. Known for a wide array of calls and whistles while mimicking other birds and animals, they excel at expressing their opinions and influencing events to their best advantage. Often when I'm in the outdoors, I hear the familiar sound of a hawk, a cardinal or a crow only to discover it is actually Mr. or Ms. Blue Jay, exercising their energetic curiosity and lively gift of gab. I hope to harness those qualities of Blue Jay on Saturday as I try to convey my passion for painting on Yupo paper with verbal clarity, enthusiasm and forthright action.


I look forward to seeing some of you there tomorrow!
