Spring and birdnests



I've been thinking spring lately. These are two paintings I just did of birdnests with eggs. The top one is on paper and the bottom one is on wood. You'll find these on whimsytwo, my etsy shop.

Hi Donna. I love the paintings. Makes me anxious for spring to be here and the birds to begin building nests. Every year as soon I buy a new fern and hang it on our front porch a little house finch comes and makes her nest there. We get a great view of her out our living room window! Rhondi

Otis and Riley as so adorable. Dudley is the only one in the house that plays with plush toys. Orchid and Willow prefer bones.

I love the nest paintings Donna! I have been into birds and nests lately! I just purchased 4 vintage bird nest and egg prints/bookplates.

Hugs,

These are delightful. Soon the birds will be chirping and flying around making their new nests.
They will look to your 'home' designs for inspiration..!
Enjoy the weekend Donna..!

Oooh, Donna, how beautiful! We have a nest by the back door. Every year a robin lays her eggs there. This winter, some other little brown bird (a wren, perhaps?) has appropriated it. I wonder what will happen this spring when the robin comes back...
Have a wonderful weekend!
