What is it with nests, eggs & birds?

I started painting this subject matter because it was comforting to me at the time. My teenage son was starting to gain more independence and pull away from his over-nurturing mother, which I found rather painful and sudden. I know that things were moving along as nature intended and he was ready, but I wasn't. Once again, painting got me through a difficult period. A lot of love went into these nests and I hope it shows. Some galleries have asked me to do more birds, nests and eggs, so I am thinking about it, but I am pretty hung up on sculpture right now.
