Janey of Janeys Journey is preparing her zine of fabulous poultry. Since she seems to have otherwise foresaken her birds altogether in favor of her beasties, I thought it would be a good time to post this beautiful post card she sent me of the Orpington breed that won the grand prize at the 1886 Crystal Palace Poulty Show.
Needless to say, I value this small piece of art. Janey's creative, whimsical drawings with their economical lines and bright colors always make me happy. I was going to frame the Orpington bird and hang it on the wall, but then decided that the desk frame you see here would allow me to have it on my desk at work where I could enjoy it all day.
In the picture above, I tried my own breeding program with the rooster lamp. It didn't work. I'm thinking now - maybe they are both roosters? I think so - my mistake - sorry guys.
Finally, Raena of Raena's Sketch Journal has stepped out of her comfort zone, and sketched in public. She deserves an award, and here it is. Congratulations Raena!
