This cute little bird started out as just a page of a discarded book picked up at an antique shop. Flipping through the pages in my obsession of finding words that have not been read in decades, I noticed the word winter. Winter, not a word I really jump up and down for, but look closer. I cut the circle just right to reveal a hidden secret. "Winter can be art" Think about the endless ways that can be defined. This little bird was born on a scrap piece of wood with some paint and does he know he is on a scrap piece of wood? Does he know it is cold outside? Does he even know why he is here? Probably not, this little bird knows a secret... that life is beautiful even in winter. The meaning need not be hidden in old pages, under dust or lost in the cold of winter. This little bird is happy just being. I created him for a friend and he is hanging proudly on a wall in their home but his message is going to keep me warm this winter. I will just "bee" happy "beeing" and for me this winter will be art! Advice to all...Bee creative today in anything you do, just call it art and it will bring a whole new meaning to why you do it and how it makes a difference in the lives of those around you. After all... you are a work of art... and you are fabulous!
