Dwelling

Two bluebirds lying on a bed of sticks and grass.
It could be a nest. It could be a pyre.
There is a fine line between life and death.

I just love your birds. Really like their "nest". Those simple clean lines, very nice!

Incredible! I love it when an artist points something like that out - adds a whole other dimension which is easy to miss if you're just looking through pictures casually on the internet, I think...

Love the bluebirds! Ours are back in the boxes. They are delightful to watch and their nests are so beautiful.
How do you find time to do all this work? You amaze me!

I am so jealous! I put up boxes for bluebirds, but we have wrens instead! Don't misunderstand, I love my little wren family, but I would love to watch bluebirds too!

To answer your question - I try to paint every day. It doesn't always work out, but I try.

I love your stuff! When I get a little extra money I'm definitely going to buy something. This one is my favorite, thus far.
