Below is a birdhouse I painted as a donated piece of art work for an organization named "Shine." It puts a spotlight on young artists and their instructors. Here's their link for more information: Shine and other artists who are involved.
Mine includes one of my all-time favorite French sayings, "Petit à petit, l'oiseau fait son nid." In English, "Little by little a bird builds its nest" or every bit helps. I prefer to think of it as a reminder to any sort of achievement...one step at a time! I have another painting in mind for that saying, so it will be appearing again in a completely different form.
I took some pictures indoors and some outdoors so here are versions of both. I still don't think I captured the colors on camera like I would have liked to have had.
