Art just doesn't get any better than this...



If you thought yesterday was good, I saved the best til now. At a little used bookstore I frequent, last week I picked up a fabulous thing. I set it aside and didn't look until this morning, so I am just now getting pics out, but boy it's worth the wait. You know how at antique shops you can pick up prints of precopyright paintings, sometimes for $10, $20 or more for rarer ones? Well, I got 50 Audubon bird prints in unbound format (easy to scan in) for $25!!!!

I am in seventh heaven! I am retiring to my basement, uh studio, to make art!

Wow! What a find. The scans you put up are beautiful. I'm going to have to keep that in mind when I go to my used book store.
