I'm not sure what's up lately with me and sentimental old pictures. I have few favorites...old flowery prints from the 1920's to the 1940's, old religious prints, and, just recently, bird pictures...blue jays and cardinals particularly.
This friendly little bird painting of blue jays on a wintery branch was waiting for me at Goodwill in a terrible gold frame with matting. If this painting should have been in a metallic frame AT ALL, it should have been silver. The gold was really outre. I took that off and found a wonderful old oval frame, turned it on its side and cut the blue jay painting to fit.
