The sun came out and the temperatures warmed up this afternoon, so I took myself out for a trail walk to improve my spirits. It never fails to help, deeply inhaling the deep woods air, watching the chickadees swoop in for their seeds.
I've been thinking about this nest that I pass by regularly, wondering if I might reproduce it in fabric and thread. I've done a quick little watercolour today to get a feel for its shapes, colors and shadows.
I'm calling it Gone South and will need to play with it some more before moving to fabric. A few touch ups are needed here too, but you get the idea.
