First painting in quite awhile

Still Life With Nest II
15x30 oil on linen panel

Well, I dove right back in to painting after about a 7 month hiatus.  The impetus was a juried show here in New Mexico. I did very well at this same show last year, and so I felt it was a good investment of time to
enter again, and hope for the best.  
Unfortunately, I mis-read the application information, and ended up with only 3 days to do a painting, and I had to drive 2 hours to hand deliver the entry form in order to get it there in time!

I've painted many of these same elements before.  And, because I had such little time, it seemed like a good idea to paint something relatively straightforward and simple.
