| 'The Care and Feeding of Birds' wood assemblage|

I suppose it's the natural balance to the high times of summer with its rush of outward activity.
This is a piece I made for my local library's Christmas auction a while ago. I only donate originals to a few organizations, the library being one.
I try to make artwork for them that includes a book. It's hard to see the cardinal on St. Francis's finger due to the beautiful wreath behind it. Birds are good at camouflage, you know. I posted this version because it showed the holiday greenery on location at the library, and hopefully the holiday spirit as well.
Although it is a solitary time of year, helping others, animals included, in various ways seems even more essential.
