June 2, 2011 Felicia's Nest

Felicia's Nest/ graphite on paper/ 30"x22"

Felicia gave me this nest. She found it in her back yard. It is a lovely nest, I think probably a robin's nest. It is made basically with mud, and then the twigs are added. It is deep, and looks like a nice round basket. What a wonderful place for a nursery! And so perfectly suited to New Mexico, adobe.


  1. Wow, it is so beautiful. Isnt it amazing how tiny little birds can build their own dwelling? without hands? Wow.

  2. Beautiful--Felicia's nest, and yours, which you have rendered so perfectly. Remarkable inventions, both.

  3. gorgeous texture Annelle...the nest feels safe, comforting and sacred too.

  4. these creations of yours go straight into me, the simplicity of the image given its rightful weight against its canvas. stunning, annell.


  5. I think I told you already how much I love this sketch. But I will say it it. Make some prints and sell them Annell. I would buy! Wouldn't they make great cards, wrapping paper, wall name it!@
