When I was growing up our breakfast table looked out on the flower garden with the bird bath in our back yard. My parent's designed the house with the breakfast nook to have the big window view of the yard. It was at that table that I learned about the different birds, their habits, their songs and of course their names.
Of all the beautiful birds we witnessed through the years, I remember my mom telling me the little wren was her favorite. I always wondered why. It was so - -brown. It wasn't vivid like the cardinal or blue jay.
But, now, I think I too favor the wren. I love it's jaunty little tail feathers. While he is unassuming, his markings are beautiful. When I watch them I see their over confidence. They always have a beautiful song on their heart.
If you are interested in this little wren, you can reach me at email@example.com.
With a song in my heart,

Don't we all need to be coaxed a little from time to time? Or sometimes, I need a shove! ha!
I love Dance, Darlin' because she is sheepishly standing by the wall, afraid to get out on the dance floor of life. But, we are telling her it's not only okay to get out there on that dance floor, we're encouraging her to give it all she's got!
I have Dance, Darlin' on my desk at work as I need to remember it's okay to not be afraid, but to just get out there.

I had such fun painting Hope. She has a wide eyed innocence that speaks of a faith in the future. She has possibilities of goodness swirling around her. She is painted on canvas in acrylics. I've placed her in this little gold ornate frame with and then nestled in this beautiful little box with damask fabric and a clear lid - - tied with a cream colored wire ribbon. This little lady is only $35.00 plus shipping and handling. Other frames and packaging may be available.

I love painting roses and nests! I guess it's because I love roses and nests so much. Plus, they are just fun to paint! This painting is on canvas and painted in acrylics. I love how the little eggs are nestled down in the nest, protected from harm.
