Barbara Haukenberry was a great and spirited collector of art. She purchased many pieces from the Daily Painters Gallery. One cold February morning I received an email from her asking about purchasing baby mockingbird painting. She was so excited about the painting. We emailed back and fourth about the baby birds, and what good mothers the mockingbirds were.
Barbara would be a little sad if she knew the story of this painting. This little robin's egg was found under a tree in our yard. Unhappily the nest was no where to be found.
Barbara passed away a short time ago. The planet, artists, and the creatures she loved will miss her spirit.
