2011 is wrapping up. Amongst other things that means I am getting ready for my annual trip to the wilds of Wisconsin's driftless region to stay in a cozy farm cottage with beloved friends and family. It will be my daughter's first experience of this little tradition and I am counting the minutes!
Another tradition is that of first bird sighted on New Year's Day. The first bird I see
New Year's Day I will make a painting of it, and that painting will be offered up in a little giveaway here on Tiny Aviary. If you wish to be included in the drawing, please leave a comment on this post. You do not need to leave your full name unless your google/blogger identity is very common like "John". Tutto capite, amici?
Ok, I wish you health, happiness and warmth. Be kind to each other and the critters with which we share this planet. I'll be back to check on you peeps in 2012.
I will NOT be giving away this sublime bird-of-paradise print, but this one and others can be viewed here.
Thanks to my lovely friend Aaron for pointing them out.
