New nests in the works

Here is a photo of a two new nest paintings.   With the nest in the painting on the left, my eye fell for the intricacies of the bits of grass, sticks, and even small white horse hairs woven throughout.  I imagined the blue and beige patterned background, based very loosely on a geometrically printed fabric.

Reworking a painting

Tonight, I decided to rework one of my paintings of a cow in a field.  This painting originally had a more turquoise sky and a cooler green hue to the grass.  Perhaps it is the time of year, but I wanted to brown some of the grass and mute the sky. I think I'm happy with how the painting is coming along.  The photo above is a bit blurry, but you can still see the colors.
