My idea for these paintings came about when in one of the barberry bushes in front of my house we discovered a birds nest with small eggs inside. I loved the way the "mommy" bird had nestled her small home between the branches. A week or so went by and before we knew it the birds had hatched and were gone, isn't that the way, time just seems to fly. I wanted to do a series of these with one or more eggs in the nest to represent the people you may have in your home.
