"The Seamstress" 8x10" Oil on panel
Some friends of mine recently mailed me a little abandoned "hummingbird nest" that I used for reference in this new piece. I painted this little "hummingbird" sitting on top of a spool of red thread. She is weaving the colors into her nest. This new oil painting will be for sale at my next art show in a few weeks.
I have found that if I have colored dryer lint from the dryer, I don't throw it away. I roll it up into a little ball and place it outside in a tree. The birds love to come and pick small pieces of it for their nest building. I don't usually get to see the nests, but I have found some abandoned nests with colored threads and fluff before. It's always a fun discovery.
