An homage to home, where all of us have a story to tell...it is where it all began. This piece was created inside of a wooden shadowbox measuring 9" x 11" x 2" which is perfect for display as a decorating accent.

Here we have the bird in a nest, singing a song on top of the shadowbox, the home. Inside we have the metal leaves, the 'tree' made from a cinnamon stick and corrugated board. Accenting the tree trunk is a small ruler, perhaps enumerating the number of children? family members? Nests at the bottom are filled with beautiful beads representing the family. The piano music ties the inside of the piece together with the outside, the bird sings a song and we all have our own song that we sing. If you could choose a song to be YOUR song...what would it be?!

NOTE: The bird shown on the bottom left corner in the photo is not attached to the art work and is not part of this piece. For decorative purposes only.
