Cindy's Challenge - Bird's Nest

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

My thanks to Cindy who posed this marvelous challenge ( and awesome photographs !! Such fun, Cindy -- and a wonderful challenge for us!!!!! I can't wait to do this again! THANK YOU!!!

I've watched chickadees build a nest and hatch a clutch in my own bluebird box, and now the bluebirds have reclaimed their 'home' with a nest of eggs of their own. Seeing Cindy's wonderful photographs make me appreciate even more the incredible life that goes on in the small places we don't often notice or pay attention to ... THANK YOU again, Cin!

We're off early this morning to another art festival. I've not attended this one before, but there are over 25 artists displaying their art in an outdoor festival near my work place. I know two other folks also attending - so it should be fun.

The weather promises to be warm again - so plenty of water and sunscreen.

Hope you have a great day!

Oh Lin this is SO lovely. A nice departure from your regular subjects, and yet not too far away with all those beautiful green leaves. The nest and eggs are so well crafted. My thanks to Cindy too!!

Enjoy your art festival; whew; stay cool.

Still voting.
Big hugs,

This was so unexpected and really brought a smile to my face. Wonderful job on the texture of the nest and the subtle color.

Have a great time at the festival!

I feel like I can reach into this nest and pick out one of the eggs. Nice job on making it so dimensional. Love the greenery around it too.
