Hello, all! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. We were able to take a break from packing to have a cookout with some friends, which was a nice diversion. I am so ready to just have everything on the truck and be done with it! There is still more left to do and we’re down to the nitty-gritty, which is the worst part of packing, in my opinion! It’s almost done, though. I’ll share more about the logistics on our move in tomorrow’s post.
Until then, I thought I would share more detail on a piece I get a lot of questions and e-mails about – this bird painting…
It is an original painting that I purchased from a charity auction at my sons’ school about three years ago. I got in a bit of a bidding war for it, but I still only paid around $40, which I thought was a good deal. It came in the pretty frame as well.
I have looked up the artist’s name, simply signed “Mina”, but I didn’t come up with anything.
I’ve had a few offers to buy the painting, but I’m planning on keeping it for now! I’ve developed a real love of original art and I’m trying to cultivate my collection.
If you’re interested in starting or adding to an art collection, I hunted and pecked around Etsy and found some original paintings of birds and nests that spoke to me…
