A Birds Nest

24"x 30" oil on textured canvas

This painting will be leaving the nest tomorrow, going home with its new owner.  I will miss it just as I always do, but it is going to such a good home that I cannot be too sad.  It is a gift to learn that at times my art may speak to someone, and bring a bit of joy beyond my own paint brush.  Thank you so much for remembering this painting Jen & John...

Written in the edge of the nest is a little saying that I have loved from the first time I read it.

"Although we cannot prevent the birds of sadness from flying over our heads, we must not allow them to build nests in our hair." Author unknown.
