Butterfly Boxes

Here is Mom, Dad & Baby Bluebird. The birdhouse was inspired by John Lithgow's Micawber, illustrated by C.F. Payne.

The Freeport Bulldog birdhouse is a donation for a Freeport High School Band Booster drawing at their Spring Concert. The squirrel birdhouse is in my own backyard this year. Eastern Bluebirds made this their home. I went to great lengths to make sure that they weren't taken by raccoons or snakes and I'm happy to report that 4 babies have left the nest. I even have pictures of their flying lessons!

My art this summer is all about the birds and the bugs. I've been making and selling birdhouses and butterfly houses.
