Nests - A collection over time

Nests - A collection over time These nests have been gathered while gardening and are treasure for me. A gentle reminder of my connection to nature and my surroundings. "I don't collect stuff, but I do collect nests!" Over time (6 months) the painting evolved asking more of me. The addition of my neighbour’s quail egg, painted leaves that have been collected on my morning walks and the use of pattern. The passage of time is visible in the change in colour of the leaves as the seasons have changed. A textured background was the starting point of this acrylic painting.
