Habitat for Humanity birdhouse
Regional artists were invited to decorate a birdhouse for auction to benefit the Connecticut chapter of Habitat for Humanity. They actually gave each artist the birdhouse, which made the project easier. The surface was rougher than I would have liked- but I think a variety of media have made the surface irregularity a positive thing. I call this:
"When the Caged Heart Sings"...
A couple of years ago I painted a birdhouse and forgot, until I recently looked it up, that it was also a musically themed house! Perhaps it is because birds are musical gifts to us... they bless the planet with song.
