P1940183 blue footed booby 2

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” –  Degas

A random conversation inspired this whimsical illustration.   Sketched and painted between a hurried breakfast and a check-out departure via tour bus, this illustration will provide a big smile to a friend’s friend – who requested, ‘Bring me a feather from a blue-footed booby!”

We spotted white ibis at Isla Corazon - (Rio Chone near Bahia de Caraquez)

We spotted white ibis at Isla Corazon – (Rio Chone near Bahia de Caraquez) – but few blue-footed boobies live in this area!

Since we didn’t cross paths with a blue-footed booby, we hope that the image (at the top) will give her a grand smile!

Ironically,  Jonathan, the director/operator of this coastal tour, looked at the image and remarked, ‘A blue-footed owl!”   Immediately an entire series of blue-footed creatures raced through my mind!

Sometimes it’s not important to get everything perfect.  Allow the mistakes to shine while you capture the memories of the moment!

Place your bets;  will more blue-footed creatures parade through future posts?!
