This project was very exciting for me--I was commissioned to create a series of 22 colorful bird platters and the work was placed in each room of the children's hospital.  Studies support the idea that representational art depicting nature can have a beneficial effect on patients experiencing stress and anxiety.  I just love the idea of each room and each child having its own little birdie.

Hope is the thing with feathers...

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.    Emily Dickinson

Just listed this little bird on my Etsy site!
