Just finished

Contemplation: Small Nest
oil on canvas, 8"x10"
if you are interested in purchasing
update: SOLD

This little oil painting, one of the first of my "Contemplations" series, is a study of the beautiful details that are found in small, unassuming objects.   I found this wonderfully shaped bird's nest, measuring only about 4" in diameter, along a shady path in the mountains in western North Carolina.  It had blown out of a tree.

I love the nest! Totally worth the extra attention it demanded.

Thanks Sunny - those little sticks and pine needles were tricky - but ultimately a lot of fun for me to paint. Glad you like the finished piece
