I have been playing around (again!) with painting on venetian plaster.  Somehow, I keep going back to it.  This nightingale was inspired by (ahem) the name of my Etsy shop, Nightingale Street, and by the fresco paintings of Livia's garden in the Museo Nacional in Rome.  A very plain bird and a glorious voice.  Sings at night, or so I've heard.
