#193 – The Devoted Friend
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
This stunning blue jay is juxtaposed against crimson autumnal foliage. We often see blue jays on their own, but in many cases they are temporary lone explorers, taking a curious deviation from their flock. Their flocks prefer to travel with the sun in groups ranging from 5 to 50 birds. The next time you see a blue jay hopping about, remember that there are many more nearby, waiting. Spotting a flock of blue jays is a unique sight, and one you won’t forget. Ruby toned iron oxide pigments of red, orange and yellow add depth to the dense background. The blue jay is painted in layers of primary cyan, light phthalo blue and titan creams.

Jeff Dillon the Canadian Artist, inspired by the bold colours and brush strokes of Post-Impressionist Artists. His unique style focuses on capturing light, not through the detail of realism, but with gesture, illusion, shape and colour. He offers a personal and distinctive style to the world through his bold use of colours and lines, often symbolic images or subject matter. Objects in the paintings retain their realistic appearance yet have a vibrancy and fluidity about them, unique to his work. Jeff Dillon’s new expression of Post-Impressionism is both beloved and revered in the Canadian and Global Contemporary Art World.
