I enjoyed painting it and may attempt it again in a more abstract way.

These are the strawberries my neighbor picked for us. They are long gone and I didn't share them with my husband. HUH!

Mother/father birds are very resourceful when building their nests. I love to see the found objects they use. We once knew a woman who left her thread and yarn snippets out for the birds.
Barbara Tester took the photo reference for this painting. It is not known how the blue fiber became a part of this nest, but the eggs had a cushy little room, hence the title.

This is a start of a new series, actually a familiar subject matter, but a new way of presenting it. Each painted image is sewn to the background watercolor paper, then matted. The scanner is not my friend today, as the mat is a much softer grey and a perfect compliment to the painting.
Feedback is most welcome.

I have always enjoyed painting textures---wood, rust, etc. so this was a very enjoyable painting experience. I seem to have more difficulty than most getting the color yellow to show up as painted. I have tried many different ways to correct it, but I'm baffled. The yellow on the bird is actually a little more lemon colored.
Thanks to Nicole B for generously sharing the beautiful photo reference for this painting. I just love it.

Some days are better than others. Today I painted four small paintings and I am unhappy with all of them. I'd like to blame it on the all-day, allergy-related sneezing and nose-blowing, but I know that a bad painting day is still a good day. Today I learned that painting with acrylics on watercolor paper is not enjoyable to me, even though to many artists, it is. I also learned that even though my two and only two poppy flowers are precious to me, they do not make a good painting.
Tomorrow will be a better day.

p.s. It was really hard to represent the down that is woven into this nest.

I am so happy that, once again, the beautiful song birds are populating our neighborhood. For the last couple of years, we had sharp shinned hawks across the street from us. (Wish I had a feather or two.) Although it was fascinating to watch them pluck fresh twigs from trees to make the nest, and even more fun to see the fledglings fly for the first time, I was sad to see the the songbird population dwindle significantly. An advantage to having hawk neighbors was that they took care of the rabbits too.
No such luck this year.

My stash of feathers is void of red feathers, so today I remembered the cardinal, and I was very determined to retrieve whatever I could from this beautiful bird. "Desperate times require desperate measures."
