In June I completed several new pieces responding to "Call for Art" for Atlanticare Foundation's Healing Arts Program, Egg Harbor Township, NJ. They needed artwork for their new Maternity/OB Ward. I'm delighted and honored to share that they purchased three of my pieces-- two collages and a painting! (below) Evan and I drove six hours to deliver them Friday. Thank you, Lord, and keep the blessings flowing!! Chery Broschard, the Development & Cultural Project Manager, is always looking for new art. To be added to her mailing list, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to know why this was such a breakthrough for me, drop me a line and I'll tell you more of the story!

What a great group of artists and art lovers!
Thanks to my immensely talented, kind, and creative friend, Diana Patton for taking these pics!
After we took the winter cover off our air conditioner unit in May we noticed some wrens building a nest there.
Soon Evan noticed a mama wren sitting on her eggs.
A few weeks after that... the baby wrens arrived!
We heard them peeping loudly, stronger every day, for a few weeks...
And then a few days ago.... they flew the coop!
Below are some images of a brave one making his way out of the nest.
Fortunately, they were able to 'explore' on the grill.
Then they hopped down into the bushes below the a/c unit.
Later, they made their way over to the nearby tree...
Shortly after this we heard them peeping over in the neighbor's yard.
It was soooo quiet after they left. We pray they survived and are doing well now!
Thank you for taking care of the wrens, Lord! :-)
I didn't get any good close-ups of the babies, but here's a collage wren from Wren's Summer Song (2010).
