This giveaway might not be for birds as much as it is of birds. I'm celebrating my first full year of blogging with an art and photo giveaway. I recently won my first giveaway from Twix and his Weiner Dog blog. http://aweinerdogblog.blogspot.com/ I'll let everyone know when my book arrives. Cool! Now it's my turn. If you like these original pieces of my art and photography, just leave a comment. Now this is the important part. At the end of the month of January I'll put the comments into a hat and draw out 2 names. You'll just have to trust me on that one. Then I'll go to your blog and award you with the prize! Lastly you'll need to come to my blog and email me your address. I'll send you one of these birds. The Hummingbird photo was taken near Fortuna, Costa Rica. It will be a 5x7 inside a matt. And my Winter Swan is a mixed media original. 5x5 and inside a 12x12 matt. Starting a blog was my New Year's resolution in 2009. And it was my followers who left comments that put the "fun" in blogging. So thankyou blogging friends. Happy New Year!
