About this artwork

A lacquered red birdcage in a store inspired this painting and the shopkeeper let me borrow it to set up the still life. As I worked, I needed to decide what species of bird's nest and eggs to paint inside. I'd been wanting to paint a bluebird's nest and their beautiful blue eggs for the longest time, but since they are cavity nesters (they only build their nests inside birdhouses or hollowed out trees) I couldn't figure out how to. Then I realized that the birdcage could be like an open birdhouse!! The painting continues around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas. It requires no framing and is ready to hang with a wire on the back.
