After a hurricane went through her town, Judy Mackey found this nest in her garden. She used a palette knife, her tool of choice, to capture the varying texture of the nest and eggs. The strong projecting branches can be seen as the strength and resilience of nature.
Originally from Japan, Judy Mackey embarked upon her professional artistic career over a decade ago after connecting with a local artist. He taught her how to skillfully wield a palette knife instead of a paintbrush, which gave rise to her own stylistic development. Judy uses this technique to create heavy texture. Her medium of choice is oil paint, with which she enjoys mixing and creating new colors with limited pigments. Her work glows with sweet simplicity in a painterly, impressionistic style.
