This gorgeous house was made with meticulous care by artist Sandy Askey-Adams. The artist made the door and the awning over the door, the windows, added the flowering look and made the rose bushes doing varied processes as well. She added the stone and made the fence. The design of the house did not overlook any detail. The back of the house also has a tree image. It is all dimensional. It even includes a pool with swans and a bike! A truly spectacular piece.
From the artist: I designed and painted it in memory of my sister-in-law Sandy Jamison Adams who died of cancer last year after putting up a fierce fight. Her cancer started with breast cancer (and it does not run in her family) She did well for about 4 years and it came back with a vengance in other areas of her body. She also donated her body to cancer research....and she loved gardening. Added to the house is a pool with swans, benches to sit upon, rose gardens, a bike to ride, fence with gardens around it, flower pots, welcoming stone mat, pebbled walkway, I made the door with awning above it, and the windows. A dimensional tree grows in the back also. I added and painted the platform that it rests upon also. Has a chimney too.
This is a large, handpainted birdhouse. There are hand painted nests and flowers with a beautifully painted roof. By Linda Evans
