This painting is I think the smallest I have ever done. By doing this miniature piece I learned that beauty can also be seen in the smallest thing such as this lovely little Carolina Wren.
This bird is one of my favourite among the song birds. Carolina wrens are not picky about where they nest. Although they usually build nests on shrubs and vines they are also known to nest on tree stumps, brush piles, evergreen branches, boxes, mail boxes, tin cans, on beams, crevices, bird houses, window sills, and hanging plants. Male Carolina wrens also sometimes make several nests even though only one is used in the same area. It is said that
they do this to confuse predators as to where the eggs really are. Carolina wren nests are made of sticks, grass, leaves, moss, pine needles, bark strips, feathers, string, and other bits of trash, and are lined with much finer grasses and hair. The nests, which are dome-shaped, look bulky.
