New Bird On The Block No. 28 chirps farewell to 2010

Seven Thirty. Collage on paper, 4″ x 4″, 06.10.10, by Randel Plowman

I have long coveted many pieces by Randel Plowman of A Collage A Day. Sadly they are usually scooped up by the time I click over to his site from an email or Google Reader. So I made haste when he announced his sale on orphaned collages (sale priced? with matting? and free shipping? sign me up!). I was shocked to see a few bird ones among the orphans. Of course my favorite was already sold by the time I clicked on it, but after a little digging I found the beauty above and made him mine. He arrived on Wednesday and is sitting in a place of honor on the curio cabinet, awaiting a frame.

With so many blogs and sites to read on the interwebz I am constantly thrilled and humbled that you are here. As we bid adieu to 2010 I wish you a New Year filled with all good things, and when you count your blessings and your friends, may you find you are “the richest man in town”.

Love the bird and that you like collage work! I also have to say that as a huge nerd (and married to a huge nerd) how in the world did I miss Firefly? How could this have happened!

laura - get it on your netflix queue PDQ! After you watch the series get the follow up movie - Serenity. Joss Wheadon is genius.

How sweet! I have been having such fun the past couple days watching the birds flock to the feeders en masse and take photos with my new lens. With all this snow they really stand out, especially the cardinals. I'll post some photos soon. Happy to have found your blog.

Happy New Year!
