Beginning last year, eggs, nests, and birds, started to show up again in popular culture. From wedding themes to knick knacks for the home these items have helped spur a new area of collecting in art. Popular images include prints like the one on the left from 1890 which is priced for $25 to the oil on canvas on the right which measures 6" X 8" for $100 and was completed by a contemporary artist named Thaw Malin. Either way, you can buy an interesting depiction of a an age-old subject matter for a price that is reasonable and likely to stay in fashion and rise in value as the years pass.

It's funny b/c my first real photo purchase was last year at AIPAD and was a b/w photo of an egg by Jefferson Hayman:

Also, I had my eye on a painting of birds on telephone wires at the Affordable Art Fair last year but it was gone when I went back. I take it as the Universe not wanting me to have that one...

Hope you're well and I love the blog!
