Tiny Nest 8"X6" oil on canvas $100.
After three days of painting flowers it is good to be back to the bird nest series.
This tiny nest is only three inches across. Made carefully with tightly woven, thinner branches than the larger nests and is lined with dead leaves.
Most of the leaves inside appear to be from the berry weed I have painted behind it. I also thought I had better paint something which would show the scale of the nest.
I do not think this is a humming birds nest...but not quite sure.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
