“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!”
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?!
