Robin's Nest, 5x5 Inches, Acrylic


This sweet little painting speaks to the 'nesting' lots of us feel, where we want to make safe places, comfortable places to care for the ones we love.  I love robin's egg blue, and it just makes my day in the Spring when I find the empty shells on the ground - hopefully signifying that a tiny robin has made it's way safely out!

  3. I love everything about this painting--the periwinkle blue of the background, the soft blue of the eggs, and the colors of the nest. You've woven the colors in a very believable safe haven for our feathered friends.

  5. Great painting Kelley. I love the peaceful feeling one gets from the different blues in this painting. I especially am drawn to the wonderful brushstrokes in the nest and titches of yellow and orange of the twigs. You definitely accomplished the comfortable safe feeling you were looking for. :-D

  12. Heard you on the AHA show the other day. I love how you've captured the strong structure of the nest and the softness of the inside with your color and temperature choices, looking forward to more.

  13. I've never seen a robin's egg, but I've heard of robin's egg blue all my life. It's a beautiful color. I love how it is juxtaposed against the warm colors in the nest. Very nice!

  14. I love your little nest, love you tackled the browns in the nest itself. BTW, I hope Paco didn't eat the baby bird after it popped out of the pretty little egg, HA!
