Robin's Nest

Robin's Nest
by
Cheri Wollenberg

Recently my sister and I have become really interested in bird's nests.  We both have wrens that make their nests in what seems to be the most inappropriate places around our homes.  I have taken my ferns down to water them only to have a little wren scamper out so quickly I thought a hummingbird was leaving the fern.  My sister has a potted plant outside her kitchen that a little wren has possessed.  I am also interested in the robin's nests as well.  One of my students recently brought in a picture of a robin's nest that her cousin had taken in a tree in her yard.  She shared the picture with me and as I painted this one, I used a little "artistic license" to accomplish a nice little decorative nest.
This painting may be purchased in my etsy store.  Follow this link:

Beautifully done, Cheri. I have a photo of one in my yard but with three blue eggs. Saved it for painting one day, too.

Robins nests are so dear to me as I have a child named Robin. Beautiful and sensitive.
