Day 2 - 30/30 Challenge, Round 4

Nest 
9.5" x 9.5", watercolor and colored pencil on Arches Hot-Press paper.

This is another painting I finished up on Sunday for a show at The Art Guild for our long awaited Re-Opening at Elderfields. I'm still looking for a perfect title. "Nest" is so obvious, right? Suggestions welcome! (Please excuse the poor photo.)

This little nest is on the kitchen window sill at Elderfields. It simply appeared one day – this amazing little construction of mud and carefully chosen grasses and viney sticks. Then there was one egg, then four. But suddenly the robins abandoned it. A little sad.

I'm working on some other things - both painting and non-painting, so I'm not sure what to show you next. We'll be surprised together!

I'll be reminding you every day that I'm having a sale in my Etsy shop. Anything $35 and more is 15% off. (The mermaid has to buy some picture frames for that solo show, you know.) Please use the coupon code below...
