Nest on a String...


Nest's have always peaked my curiosity. For as long as I can remember I have photographed, collected and incorporated nest's into my work. I sketched and did the pre-work on my latest piece last Autumn. I have been studying various eggs and the nest's in which they reside. This painting has a starry night and a quiet, dreamy and ethereal clutch of eggs.



This painting is a bit abstract in the nest and has elements of paper adhered and painted on the canvas. It was a joy to create this mini (8x8) jewel of a piece.
