As I was working on 'little things', an industrious robin was building a nest nearby. And, I was serenaded by cardinals the whole time. As I was taking photos of 'nest', a cardinal perched nearby and sang for about 20 minutes. Instead of being timid, he came closer, as if he wanted to be a part of things.

Materials:  Just as birds layer their nests, there are multiple layers of text to this piece, including an old envelope and, of course, the word 'nest' is centered. Turquoise and orange Japanese papers add to the sky. The substrate of nest is salvaged wood.

Parts of the collage wrap around the right side of this piece ~ all sides are unfinished in keeping with the substrate. 'nest' is light enough to be hung with 3M command strips (or something similar), but is probably best suited to nesting on a shelf. This piece is finished with a matte varnish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
