Wishing you all a terrific and creative 2019.
This is my favorite nest of last year
I painted it three times.
The one above
It is 8"x10" oil on canvas.
Lots of layering went on...
and on... and somehow
I feel as if I built this nest -
instead of painting it!
It is a Bluejay nest.
Friends from Santa Fe gave it to me a couple
of years ago when they were having an addition
put on their house and found it.
It is on a beautiful sycamore branch in my studio.
The one below was 24"x24"
HUGE for me.
I LOVED painting it.
Ladybugs, grasses, feathers, leaves,
are all in there - part of nest making!
Sunrise colors are behind the large one but
I became creative with blue twigs
in the top one. I found I enjoyed playing
around with colors and glad I stuck to it.
So, as you see, the same nest provided me
with hours of pleasure
How many of you thought I meant the
PAINTING at top was my favorite
and not the nest itself?
Interesting how we read things.
Though I better put it right!
Both of them sold and I hope the owners
enjoy finding little areas of interest
that have my heart and soul
embedded in them.
Again....happiest of years ahead
and thank you for following my blog.
