Scientific studies indicate that art heals by changing a person’s physiology and attitude. Physiology changes from one of stress to one of deep relaxation. Perceptions of the world are immediately changed from darkness and despair to hope and jubilation.

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals is an organization founded by Elaine Poggi. I recently had the wonderful pleasure of meeting her via the Internet during my research of children’s hospitals to whom I was seeking to donate some of my nature art. I e-mailed her, and right away, she responded back. Well, to give you the short version, I am now one of the Foundation’s contributing photographers!!! 🙂 Below is a picture of my “Regal Camellia” which has been added to their website. This image is also available on various products in my VIDA, Fine Art America, Pixels, and Zazzle online stores.


Please visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about its founder Ms. Poggi and her extremely worthy cause. You can also show support for her organization through Amazon when you make purchases. If you buy items on, please consider using which is the same as Amazon, except that it donates 0.5% of the price of your purchases to The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals! Just click on the link and choose the Foundation. Then shop always from instead of The Foundation is receiving more than $200.00 a year from Amazon, and if more people do this, they will be able to fund a whole photo project in a hospital very soon. Please help spread the word about this among your friends and family.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

ZAZZLE CARD (LITTLE THINGS-TITMOUSE)Have you ever felt like a small speck in this great big world we live in, perhaps doubting your worth in the eyes of God and others? I have. I think that from time to time, many of us may feel that way. That is why I created the “Little Things” greeting card with a picture of my favorite little tufted titmouse that visits my feeder everyday. Although small, God created it, and it matters to Him just as much as the big things He created matter. If it didn’t, He would not care for it as He does.

The inside also contains a special message that I personally wrote. So if you know of someone who feels this way and could use some cheering up, this card is for them. Give it to them from your heart to theirs .
