Bird paintings "Little Nest"

"Little Nest"

Another little oil painting from my bird series, "Little Nest".  There are so many birds outside my window searching and scavenging for just the right materials to construct a  place to lay their eggs.  They are natural little architects working hard to gather little leaves, spider webs, twigs and even dryer lint.  They stop periodically to take a dip in the bird bath since our weather here is going to be around 100 degrees today.  I am enjoying painting a new series of detailed still lifes in oil.  This little painting is just a fun quick little one I sqeezed in.  It is only 4"x4" on a canvas panel.   For more information

Amazing what they fnd for thier nests, here on the coast, they use redwood leaves and the most recent nest is on the top rung of a ladder.

It is amazing to see some of the materials they find and how sturdy the nests are. Sometimes they do not pick the best places to build them however.

The blue eggs against the brown nest is stunning.
