This may be insane, or it may be brilliant, and, either way, I'm excited. For the first year ever, we're releasing a Portia St. Luke Christmas Ornament. The painting is a gentle, realistic watercolor and ink painting of a blue-jay perched on a tiny birch sprig.
The fearless blue-jay is known for both its talkativeness and its seemingly boundless courage. Much like Magpies, ravens, and crows, they are vocal, expressive and can mimic other birds and humans. Call the energy of the blue-jay into your life to help strengthen your sense of and to find courage to speak out,“find your voice,” and believe in yourself. Those with the blue jay as a totem or spirit guide are often drawn to professions such as sales people, lawyers, politicians, public speakers, and teachers.
