Drifters 8 x 16 on Canvas

My mother found this nest in a bush last fall for me to use in the workshop I was taking, but I just now have gotten around to paint the nest. I liked the straw that the bird used and I was going to paint the nest leaning up against driftwood, but felt like it already had the look I was trying to achieve with the thick straw the bird used. I wanted the painting to look like the nest was on the beach with all of the seaweed and debris that washes up on the beach.
