    With all of the leaves long gone, I spotted this little nest outside my studio window. I don't think my husband signed up for climbing trees, but he did bring this in for me. The nest was abandoned last year and was empty. I kept looking at it wondering how best to use it in a painting, realizing that simple is best. Spring comes early to Northern California so I shouldn't have to wait too long now for new leaves on the trees and birds busy nesting again.
