Dove Nest with Blue Flowers
Ringneck Dove family, with two parent birds in a nest of twigs, protecting their newly hatched fuzzy yellow chick and an egg. Delicate vines with tiny blue flowers entwine the next and are held in a cluster by a parent dove. Doves are devoted parents, with a mated pair partnering to rear their chicks (squabs) together. The frame is wood with a blue-grey wash, patina-style accents and vintage wear.
This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
Last photo features Nora, one of my studio doves and a lovely model and companion.
