In this contemporary lifelike print, Barbara Mock depicts a small brown finch making its nest during the springtime. A terra cotta pot with an ivy topiary bush sits on a white stucco background in this simplistic still life. As the bush seems to come back to life after the winter cold, the small bird plucks twigs and small scraps from its vine to build a nest at the base of the bush.
Known for her relaxing, soft tones and gentle brushstrokes, Barbara Mock’s painting technique uses subtle colors and precise design to create balance and expression in her paintings. Best framed in a gold or brown frame, “Spring Nesting II” is perfect for bird watchers or nature lovers. Due to its height, this print is an excellent choice for small hallways or entryways to make the space feel larger and ceiling higher.
