I called the painting this because as I looked at her sitting in her next, guarded by branches, I realized that a redoubt is exactly what a nest is. A safe, protected place to raise her young. I kept the background loose and abstract, gradually sharpening my focus until I reach the robin herself. Painted on a wide-gallery-wrap canvas with black painted edges, wired and ready to hang. My paintings are created with archival materials of the highest quality to guarantee you a lifetime of enjoyment, if hung out of direct sunlight.
