Literary Favorites

     It has been a while, but I finally have something new to post. The holidays have taken a lot out of me. Even though I had some time off from work, I felt like I had even less time to devote to painting. I am in the process of completing a large painting of another grain elevator.
     I am also in the process of completing five Literary Birds. I'm so pleased with how they turned out, particularly the one that has two blue birds on branches. The design on the birds looks remarkably like feathers.
     Tomorrow I will spend time building frames for them, and then frame them to complete the works of art.
     Each of them will be available for purchase. I sell them for $45, which includes a frame made from recycled wood, a cloth backing and a hook. Each is an original piece of art. You can get an idea of what the frames look like if you refer to an older post, "Frames on the Brain." If you are interested, please contact me by email at:
     My wife and I will soon be launching a Facebook business page dedicated to wonderfully creative items we have made that will look perfect in your home -- or nest. The name of the business is The Nesting Place. We do not yet have a launch date, but when it happens, I'll blog about it, and post a link. You will then be able to go to it and 'Like' the page.
     The site will provide visitors with an opportunity to view, comment on and purchase items from us. We're looking forward to it.
     Until then, keep stopping by to check out what I have. As always, please feel free to comment.
