Bird's Nest and Eggs - Sold

"Home Decor"
12"x 12" Oil on Gessobord

I finally decided to paint this treasured "prop" and love the way it developed. Several years ago when my husband worked for a wholesale nursery he began bringing home abandoned nests that were found in bushes and trees arriving from the growers. It's sad really that those mommy birds lost their nest and sometimes offspring but I'm thankful to have a good collection of nests. This one is by far the most creative and colorful and the painting is very close to the actual nest. It's an amazing example of how resourceful God's creatures can be. This sweet mom had a real flare for interior design. ( These eggs are non-GMO :)
