tree + birds for baby.

last week, i painted the nursery of a baby that won't be born for a few more months. my painting was one of the first moves towards "nursery-fication", so i hope he/she likes. :)

the parents specified that the birds look like wrens, so i did my best to create wren-like birds!

there were 5 birds total. mommy and daddy birds, taking care of a baby bird, and two birds "hidden" in the room (i always love to do a couple of unexpected things!)
