Special thanks to Jasper Smith, the artist of the cardinal above. He and his wife Sally lived in Michigan most of their lives. After his retirement as a math teacher in East Detroit, they became “snowbirds” - sharing Boca Raton and Warren as their homes. Jasper loves the outdoors, and whenever he goes for a walk, he is fascinated by the birds. About eight years ago when Jasper was 70 years old, he was diagnosed with dementia. His wife passed away in January 2012, and Jasper now lives with his daughter in Florida. While visiting the Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center, a unique Center of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing at FAU in Boca Raton, he painted this beautiful cardinal during one of their art activities.
