I'm always searching for great titles for my paintings. This one came from an afternoon of perusing the local record store with my son. He picked up the album Flood by They Might Be Giants and said, "Hey Mom! You should call one of your paintings "Make A Little Birds Nest In Your Soul". The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are finished as a continuation of the background. The back is wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer Ross grew up surrounded by the art of her mother and grandfather. Her attempt to follow in their footsteps presented detours, however, and she ended up working in art galleries selling other's work. But her desire to paint continued to grow throughout the years. In 2008, a gift certificate to a local art store turned into an epiphany when she decided to try painting. Jennifer found inspiration in a collection of antique prints of birds' nests and eggs by the English artist, F.O. Morris, and began to create an avian series. These paintings serve as symbolic family portraits of what we all hold dear - our home and loved ones. Today, she is often commissioned to paint various colored eggs representing patrons' family members.
