Ink on translucent paper, size 4" x 5.25" I have had the recommendation from a very smart nature-lover (thanks to Laurie:) to create a Blue-footed Booby image for a long while now. I always thought this was a fabulous idea so I painted this little guy. The name booby comes from the Spanish term bobo, which means "stupid" or "fool"/"clown". For this reason I want to work more with this image to give it more personality and this characteristic.
