A Nest of a Different Color

           Sometimes I just get a little crazy and have to try some different, unconventional colors for something. Maybe it’s because I’m not that fond of brownish-grey, which is what the nest’s true colors seemed to be. I may have had some encouragement from a friend of mine, Karen Margulis, a talented artist and teacher, whose photo this is.  Whatever the reason, I like the warm orange of the eggs against the purples in the nest and really enjoy the idea that as an artist I can change reality, even if only in a limited manner.
