Side Entry Nest
11x9" watercolor on Yupo Paper NFS
A friend gave me this wonderful
He knew that the nest was no
longer occupied and he thoughtfully
included the tree branches which
supported it rather than
destroy it's structure.
I love the "side entry" type nest, but this one
tragically came with two tiny
skeletons in the interior.
Were they too large to have
been recently hatched?
Or were they the parents?
I will be very respectful
in my handling of them
and their lovingly made home
If you can use your imagination
there are two leaves up on the right
near the opening which I painted to
form an abstract shape suggesting
a bird flying towards it.
This is the last painting
for the challenge.
I will do a wrap up of my experience
