18x14 inches oil on canvas
This is my second oil painting featuring this charming theme of a Bluebird being startled from her nest with feathers flying. The first featured a nest resting atop a vintage cigar box and here her nest is tucked into an antique wooden box. I especially enjoy painting the details such as wood burned logos, torn paper label and partially missing brass hinge. Of course the shadow of the floating feather adds that sense of dimension and motion from a hurried escape!
Following is my first painting on this theme, "Startled"
Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
