JEANNE ILLENYE LIFESIZED BIRD'S NEST IN BLUE FOLEY TEACUP

Lifesized Nest in Blue Foley Teacup
6x6 inches / oil on panel
This charming Little Gem features a small nest from my collection which is painted lifesize and tucked into a beautiful aqua blue Foley teacup.  I've been planning for quite some time to paint nests in new arrangements so here's my first in that direction.  Actually, I've been painting bird's nests for well over a decade as some of you may have seen in my large, classical still lifes.  It was four years ago that I introduced my first small, solitary nest on ebay which was met with such a wonderful response that I've been creating these paintings ever since.
