I have captured this jay several times with my camera and noticed that she was missing her left eye. She always watches the sky and tilts her head upwards, probably because she only has one eye to scan for danger up above. It gives her the appearance of looking grateful, at least to me. I decided to do her portrait and give her back her left eye. She is an amazing little survivor. I imagine she is grateful to be alive after surviving whatever disaster in her life caused the loss of her eye.

A Sentient Being’s Prayer

I give thanks for the moments of my life,
The joy, pain, and reflective quiet times,
All make up who I am,
And I am grateful.

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)

    What a heartwarming story & wonderful gesture of your giving her back her eye….& I know you would for real if you could! Lovely painting of this cute little girl.

  • My heart really went out to her and yes, if I could, would love to give back her eye. I am constantly amazed by the will to live of all creatures. They value life so much more than many of our kind, I think. I appreciate that you read the description, and thanks for faving! :)
