let's nest.....


hooray for thursdays .... i had a morning of tennis and an afternoon of painting .... that's pretty close to a perfect day ..... now an afternoon with children, a bit more painting, studying for spelling, and (even as i type) i am getting my hair done my the youngest e.beck.artist ..... lots of squirting and brushing and pulling and poking and (did i say) pulling ..... i'm sure i look gorgeous .... basically, this very moment, i am nesting .... my three little birds are all within arms distance of me ..... have i started painting so many nests because i spend so much time nesting .... or am i more aware of the nesting i do because i've been painting so many nests...... that might be a chicken or the egg question ..... and maybe i should be painting coops ..... 
hope your nest is happy too ..... 

p.s. my two older birds are in the chorus in a play tonight ..... 
p.p.s. you can read more about this  wee nest painting on my flickr site ......

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I'm glad you like my buttons!
I love your nests! I use nests in a lot of my assemblage work. Aren't they magical??

see you there! said...

Now that's a happy picture from an obviously happy painter. My little birds are long out of the nest but once in awhile they do a fly by :-)
