Here's my creation for the Homes of Hope Auction on April 29th, 2011. The men who work at Homes of Hope built all the birdhouses, and then local artists in Greenville are decorating them for the Auction. Mine is called "flower gallery" and the idea is that it's a little art gallery for the birds to visit. I can't wait to see what all the other artists have come up with!
Q.) What can a little bird house do to help the homeless?

I hope to see you there!
Homes of Hope exists to provide safe, affordable housing for homeless and low-income families or individuals, while also providing job training and mentoring for men overcoming drug and alcohol additions.
Here are a few of their houses in progress. Now in their 13th year of operations, Homes of Hope has housed 324 families and helped 264 men thus far!
This is the bird house after I primed it, and then started cutting out little photos of my different flower paintings.
A bird's-eye view of the finished house! 🙂
Here's the front door leading into the gallery of flowers...
Here's the back of the bird house gallery.
And here's the interior of the bird house flower gallery. It's a little crazy, so hopefully the birds will enjoy color and patterns as much as I do. (But most importantly, I hope this bird house never gets put outside, as I'm sure the birds would choke on all the shiny buttons and beads!)
