Nest

2007
30.5 x 38″ framed
Graphite on 300lb. paper

Nests keep appearing around my house. The birds have taken bits of screen left over from hurricane reconstruction and dog hair and sticks to make their nests. I have drawn the screw pine tree outside my studio that makes a nest for me as I work. The convoluted trunk looks like an animal. It grows and sheds with the storms and seasons but hugs my front window like my own nest.
