When you look closely at the side of a train car, you can find all sorts of scratches, paint slashes, and weathering that are interesting compositions just as they are. Here I've isolated a section of what I found on a railroad car. ©Carol Leigh

It felt great to wake up this morning, check my e-mail, and see that these three pictures sold yesterday at Fine Art America. Every artist wants their work to be seen, including me, so it's gratifying that (a) someone actually LOOKED at these, (b) wanted them to be a part of their life, and (c) paid their hard-earned money to obtain them. I am so grateful. (And, yet again, thank you Kathleen A. for sending me such wonderful papers to use for the first image.) ©Carol Leigh
Regarding the phrase "put a bird on it," I offer this esoterica from the Urban Dictionary: Phrase exclaimed when placing an image of an avian creature on any item, especially one that was "handcrafted" or "thrifted" so as to make it totally adorable and artistic. It's, like, soooooooo cute!

P.S. Thanks to Kathleen A. for sending me some of the papers used in this collage!

The big "C" is something I created this morning, combining photos of walls with a "C" I photographed on the side of a railroad car a few weeks ago. The red "F" comes from a fishing boat (I believe — I'm finding it more and more difficult to remember where some of these images come from because I'm shooting all the time). And then the "R" is something I isolated from an overall graffiti pattern on a railroad car in Santa Fe.
The "C" was uploaded to my Fine Art America site this morning. I hope a "letterophile" will like it and want to bring it home! ©Carol Leigh
