Just Think how Books are Like Bird Houses

Just Think how Books are Like Bird Houses photo

Created Winter 2012

Inspiration- I think the beginning of this idea was a beautiful little painting I saw of a woman with a bird in her hair like the bird was on a branch.  That set me doodling and before long I ended up with a lot of branches and bird houses in the branches.  What should they be growing out of?  Hmmm... how about book shelves.  And then there needed to be a reader and a whimsical nest!  I also happen to be drawing lots of birds in my sketch book so I decided they would go into the bird houses.
