A great artist and inspiration for me, Julie Ford Oliver, have been absent for a while. She has been concentrating all her time and energy on different projects. One was an solo exhibition and she posted a few lovely watercolors of the subject of the show, "birds nests", on her blog. I wrote a comment saying "Once again you inspire me, almost want to try out birds nests".
She wrote back saying that she hoped I would and that she could see one painted in my style. Julie can paint anything, me I avoid things that doesn't excite me and I can't paint everything. But I took the challenge and this is my first attempt.
