Nest with a View



Birds have never been a theme in my work, probably because I can't draw them correctly. When the theme of birds was chosen for the challlenge I wonderedif it was possible to use the theme without using an actual bird. That is where the idea for "Nest with a View" came from.

It is painted with acrylic with several layers of under painting. If I were to do it again, I would raise the postition of the nest, so that it felt more "up in the air." This compostiton makes it look as if it is a ground nest which was not my intention. I meant to capture the view the bird would see from her nest in the tree. Oh, well, on to the next piece.

Judi, I LOVE the way the tree branch makes a circular window for a view of the mountain. You are all so blessed to have the mountains for inspiration.

Judi, Your painting makes me feel like the mother bird sitting on a branch enjoying the view and protecting her nest. Paula
