16x36 Acrylic on Canvas


The name "Whiskey Jack" (Grey Jay or Canada Jay) is actually an anglicization of the Cree word "Wisakedjak."  As a child I always wondered about the "whiskey" part. I feel much better about it all now.  I found this “Wisakedjak" in the painting on a day hike above Paradise meadows in Strathcona park. Him/her and friends were situated of course, right beside a picnic table just waiting for us to arrive and set up for lunch. They are smart like that.
