nests

"I saw a crow building a nest. I was watching him very carefully, I was a kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And you know what they do when become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable place to be? They build a decoy nest. It's just for you" - Tom Waits

Oooh yes! I like these!! And the story makes me smile.

Hello Eric,
I like your collages (the mono-prints) of nests very much. For me it looks like that you show us here many different nests of various birds at the same time.

The four others touches my heart. There is a... movement in them... so vividly... the egg in the center, sensitive and strong.

Thank you for playing!

Best,
Ariane.

Whoa this is fabulous. The quote is priceless. Your art is just fabulous. Clean. Straightforward in a good way. Thought provoking and interesting. I am interested in your art image. Lines, colours, textures, thinking. Love it all. Norma, x

Love that quote! tho I bet it's stressful for the crows ;)

Your prints are fabulous! I especially like the second set- wonderful texture and that I can sit and enjoy the differences between each one :)
Hope you have a good week!

Wow, great collages, I have no creativity at all, I would love to learn how to make collages or scrapbooks, especially the digital ones.
