Every spring for the past 5 years I have made these bird houses inspired by an example I saw at a museum in Chicago. I am making 36 to start with this year, and maybe more if needed later. Sell them out the front lawn and it's a great way to meet and visit with travelers passing through.

I will be having a gallery show of these sunflowers at the Whopping Chronies Gallery in Missoula, Montana during April. Busy now building frames for them like the frames Georga O'Keefe put on her work using door casing, thats right, door casing. She painted hers silver, I will go with black.
4 x 6 watercolor Made up a traveling art set, but it still needs some work, the brushes I chose to take were really crappy! And I had no way to sharpen my pencil or erase. Still, had fun making small paintings, this one of the fort that protected Spanish ships as the entered Lake Izabal from the Gulf of Honduras. Pirates would follow the slow moving ships and take them hostage or rob them.
