used to visit my garden
on a frequent basis but lately not so much and I was thrilled when one stopped by a few weeks ago. He is featured in the images atop this entry. I never know the reason for their absence. When I expressed this concern to a neighbor, he told me, "Birds are like teenagers They don't write. They don't call."
While that may be the case I truly miss them but am thankful for times when I've seen them in my garden and that I have been able to publish a three volume book series Words In Our Beak (WIOB)
where the stories are told in the voice of a female cardinal.
The goal of these books is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden (mine) in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. These books are directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective.
Now that almost every person (across the globe) must spend more time at home due to consequences of the coronavirus, my books have proven to be essential in bringing the outdoors indoors.
This fact has led me to believe that these books would make a great gift to give to someone for Valentine's Day, a holiday that will be here in less than a month's time.
Reading is such an amazing activity to do when you have to stay home but some find it enjoyable to do a jigsaw puzzle so I've designed a dozen of them and they are available in two sizes (500 pieces and 1,000 pieces) via Fine Art America (FAA).
Two of the puzzles in my collection, A View From The Tree Tops and Cardinal Love 3, are based on my visiting cardinals. They can be seen within the next sequnce of pictures.
The image used for my A View From The Tree Tops
puzzle is included in volume one of my book series, Words In Our Beak
. And the image used for my Cardinal Love Three
puzzle is featured on one of my face-masks
Addditionally, FAA has also rendered the image, Cardinal Love 3, on to a note-card that makes a perfect Valentine's Day greeting.
Moreover, FAA has the capacity to render this picture on to an array of surfaces for wall art, including acrylic...
...special art paper...
...as well as wood...
... for varying sizes of wall art.
FAA also offers framed images of my collection.
So there you have it, dear reader, some wisdom
re ways to enjoy birds even if indeed they are absent and not writing or calling.
