There was straw and grass from some other yard, but never eggs in this little house. It sat on a table in my courtyard, inviting and safe, but this house never became a home. 

The actual background was gray siding, so I lowered the overall key of the piece by assigning a darker value to surround the sweet little house. At least the birdhouse looks like some birdie's home.

Birdhouse is listed with, and for sale through a Dailypaintworks Auction. 

Thank you for landing here today.
