30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Bird Nest, Day 9

Daily Paintworks

As you can imagine, I think about bird nests and related objects quite a bit of the time--making 
thumbnail sketches and trying to come up with another way to present the
same subject.  
One of my ideas was to paint a gold (as in the real metal) nest, but I am not sure I could do it.
Afterall, I don't have a gold nest to observe.  
So---I decided to try a gold egg first.  No, I also don't have a gold egg, but it seemed less daunting 
to try to make one up.  Since I know it's supposed to be gold, it looks like gold to me,
I'm not sure it will look like gold to others.
