"This year in Art I decided to focus on memories: this is one of them (my Wings). When I was about 6, my grandfather and I used to watch forbirds at his house in North Carolina. I was so interested in them. My mom got me a $50 bird book that made bird sounds. I remember my feeling of success when I had memorized at least half of the bird sounds in the book. although I can't identify all the bird songs now, I still love birds and this was my inspiration for my project."- Hope
