Part of Elizabeth's ongoing series of warm, inviting and gently illuminated birds' nests. Elizabeth's friends and neighbors give her birds' nests from which she paints directly. She creates the nest by covering the surface with oil paint and then wiping off the image she wishes to create. Aside from using her fingers, she utilizes a variety of tools, including dentist tools, forks, scouring pads and sticks. After this work is dry, she goes back to paint the eggs, leaves, flowers and other details.
