Tree Birds

While finding branches in my yard for the doll house, it got me thinking about what else I could do with them. I just finished making some new bird collages for an upcoming art show, so I scanned them and printed out smaller versions. Then cut them out, and wired them to the branch. Kind of soothing to look at.

    Pretty cool, Joel. You should submit those pics to a craft magazine or a magazine like Real Simple or something. They'd probably be interested and maybe plug your blog.

    Dude--I too just found your blog though Say Yes, and then I saw a comment from you on my blog. I felt cool. You have some rad stuff and I find your constant flow of ideas {and follow through} inspiring... as an former-still-trying-to-be an artist, I always struggling with putting pen to paper. Good job.

    Browsing on the net I bought some Generic Viagraand then it occurred to me to purchase a couple of albums which relaxes the mind with glorious sound of birds and nature. I don't have birds because I hate to see them locked in there so I rather listened to my albums Buy Viagra Cheap Viagra.
