“Oh Happy Spring”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.
I love spring and I love birds nests. The doves are starting another nest on top of the outside electric panel at my brother’s. It is 5 feet from the back porch. You may sit and watch them all day as they switch positions and switch sitting. Of course it is even more fun when the babies hatch and then fledge. This nest is an older model of my sister-in-law’s. I filled it with damaged shells from a nest she found one winter which had been abandoned. I placed it out in the garden to paint by the bird feeder. Two house wrens had to come by to investigate. I didn’t move and they came within 3 feet of me!…
