A wren built a nest outside my window inside a small potted fern. The nest, an exquisite woven cylinder of leaves, and twigs. There are now five tiny, pale blue/gray eggs inside the nest. I check them quietly every morning with the mother closely watching me. I am sure there will be a painting soon coming from this inspiration. When I’m not looking out the window I have been painting… a series of watercolors influenced by relationships, transitions, and patterns that communicate a quiet sense of place. The work is inspired by nature, water, creatures, and forms I have observed recently.
