DP243 "Magpie" Original Oil on Panel Painting by Jacqueline Hill
Original Painting oil on panel 6x6" (150x150mm). Painting #243 of 365 from Daily Painting Series 2015. Painting for 31 August 2015.
I had an orphan baby magpie adopt me once, he just walked up to me at a bus stop, looked up at me and started squawking at me that he was hungry. I said oh alright and he followed me three blocks home. I had to hand feed him and I watched him learn to fly (hilarious). Then once he could feed himself, after a few days looking around outside, he got brave and joined the wild. He visited once or twice to say thank you. True story.
