Nesting Instinct 6x8 inches oil
A while ago, I asked for some "creative input" on what to put in this crow's beak. He needed to be holding something to balance the composition. I had been thinking that an earring would be clever, but decided that the painting's style was a little too rustic for a shiny bauble. Someone suggested that he carry a bit of nesting material, which seemed like the perfect solution.
