Artist's Description

Quiscalus quiscula, the Common Grackle

Produced in Painter X using the Oils and Impasto brushes. Reference photograph of the Grackle taken in Speyside, Tobago.

It reminds me of the poem by Ogden Nash:

The grackle’s voice is less than mellow,
His heart is black, his eye is yellow,
He bullies more attractive birds
With hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,
And should a human interfere,
Attacks that human in the rear.
I cannot help but deem the grackle
An ornithological debacle.
