Nesting Cardinal

'Hidden' 5x7 pastel
This momma cardinal is well hidden down in her nest! I have painted nests with eggs but this is my first bird in the nest. I found the photo in the wet canvas reference image library. Thank you to the great photographer. I usually like to work from my own photos but some shots you just don't have to opportunity to get so I appreciate a resource like the RIL.
