“Present” pertains to both the moment and a gift, which really are the same thing. A Steller’s jay came to my kitchen window one day, with a piece of white quartz in its mouth. It left the quartz, and took a peanut. It was such a moment of small magic, that the image of it stayed with me through to this painting. I wanted to use the jay and the gift of the quartz rock in a painting about being present to notice the small gifts that are given to us every moment, and how when we are quietly observant to the joy of the moment, our hearts bloom open to reveal our own magical beauty, the jewel of our spirit.
