Nest of Eggs

8 x 8 
mixed media
acrylic and paper
heavily textured paint

This little "Nest" painting very textured.  The nest itself stands up from the canvas, as can be seen in the bottom photo.  I used a technique I created,  to achieve the twig-like effect.
I have been into nests and eggs lately......I think I am looking forward to spring!  It has been very cold here and snowing most days.  The other day I had to boost my car and nearly froze off my fingers!
Find this painting for sale at my Etsy store

The Dance

The Dance
24 X 36
Acrylic and Gold Leaf on canvas
Available at "Grower Direct" in Lloydminster
Years ago, while visiting my grandmother in Red Deer, I took a picture of a tree in bloom.
I have no idea what the tree is, but those blooms were my inspiration for this painting.

Brooklyn's Room

A little girl's room I did last spring.  I just realized I had never posted it.

Bright and colorful and fun,  yellow walls are great to paint on!

"Nest Egg III"

For Sale
Nest Egg III
5 x 5
Acrylic on Canvas
I am loving painting these little nest pictures for now.  Wouldn't it make a cute baby gift?
It is ready to hang or would look sweet on an easel.
What do you think?
It would make a nice gift for someone with three children, too.
Let me know if you have any other ideas.  Thanks, I would love to hear from you.

Nest Egg

"Nest Egg"
5 x 7
Acrylic on Canvas
This painting is sold.  If you would like one like it, I can paint you one, usually within a couple days.
A creative friend of mine, Dawn Lawrence Floen, of Sunshine Industries (beautiful jewelry!!)  took a photo of a robin's nest with an egg in it.  With her permission, I painted the little jem.
We have robins at the lake, but I have never been fortunate enough to get a photo of the eggs.
Thanks Dawn!
