“Almost Empty” 6×6 in.

This is the same little wren’s nest that I used in the previous nest painting. Isn’t it amazing how color and lighting change the mood? The possibilities (one of my favorite words) are endless. Sorry about the reflection in the photo…should have taken a better one, but….I’d rather start another painting.

Here’s a little sample of what I’ve been up to. David found this tiny nest on the ground (we’d never take one out of a tree…the birds sometimes reuse nests from year to year) and brought it to me to either paint or put in my “dead area” as he calls it. I call it my nature collection. Whatever you want to call it, he finds the best things to put in it.

p.s. The eggs did not come with it. These porcelain eggs are just filling in. Hopefully, the little wrens that hatched in this nest will be back in the Spring.
