East Bay With Boat: So Long James

Variation of a painting I did for a friend.  Fun how much art
I discard, derail, and generally soothe/torture into something else. 
One day it's a Hawaiian bird, the next week it's a hazy view
of the bay.

Azure-Winged Magpie

With a black head mask and a tropical water blue on its wings and tail,
Azure-Winged Magpie is a striking bird.  I wish I can see one, and I read
that they're common in their indigenous homes---Pacific Rim to Mongolia
and the Iberian Peninsula (!).
