AND DOWN WILL COME BABY
by Claire Beadon Carnell
100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'
'And Down Will Come Baby'
Oil 6 x 6
Another little bit of whimsey that was born from the discovery
of a delicate little bird's nest (thanks to my grandson, Jake).
The main body of the nest is built from fragile plant stems, complete
with tiny dried leaves. The interior of the nest is so finely lined with
horsehair - it is swirled into the inner walls with such finesse and beauty!
Add into this nest a 3" china doll baby I have had for years...then have this
nest floating down from the sky...and the familiar lullaby starts working
its way into my head as I paint...
