Birdseed Project

The Birdseed Project ... "More Than Many Sparrows"
For several years I have been feeding the birds at my mom's nursing home. She and my dad always fed birds at home, so I have tried to keep the tradition. Her room and "family room" windows have a view of a small yard which can be enjoyed by residents and guests, so I have put out bird feeders, and a bird bath.
Recently, other residents have told me that they love the birds! They ask me to sprinkle seed here and there so they can see the birds better. 
To afford more seed for the hungry birds and these precious older people, I decided to do a short-term project. I have photographed birds all over America, and now I am painting some small bird studies.10-20% of the sales price is "seed money". I hope these small art works will fund the filling of the feeders a little bit at a time.
It has caught on, and I have linked with a bona fide charity! Now, TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donations can be made without having to purchase a painting!
Threefold Cord Ministries are "Friends of the Forgotten". They will accept ANY donation you would like to make, and will send 90% of the moneys to the Birdseed Project. They will use 10% to administer the details. IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN THE SUBJECT LINE of your payment...Make checks payable to Threefold Cord Ministries, and on the ENVELOPE you may reference "BIRDSEED". Then they will send funds to me. Or click their link and ASK!!! These are AWESOME people, and good friends of mine. If you have a loved one who is in the "Last Season" of life, I urge you to get their book:
 "Finding Life in the Last Season"....You will be encouraged!
ALSO, I am working on the BOOK! It will be out in a few months...more to come!
For now, I will post an occasional bird painting that I hope you will like. Tell your bird-loving friends!...if you would like more info or price and cost numbers, please e-mail me
To see all the paintings, click on my blog, and type in a search for "bird seed".
