This wrapped canvas print features the Great Blue Heron, a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands. He is the largest North American heron. Notable features include slaty flight feathers, red-brown thighs, and a paired red-brown and black stripe up the flanks; the neck is rusty-gray, with black and white streaking down the front; the head is paler, with a nearly white face, and a pair of black plumes running from just above the eye to the back of the head. The feathers on the lower neck are long and plume-like. Because this is the breeding season, he also has plumes on the lower back and an orange bill. He is standing in shallow water and his feathers are backlit by the luminous sunlight.
This mini iPad case features a gorgeous golden, orange and brown tortoiseshell cat sitting on a red pillow, staring out the window into a midnight blue sky. She casts a shadow on the gold colored wooden windowsill. I have digitally enhanced my original photograph to achieve a painterly effect.
This clock features an original artwork of three paint horses galloping across a southwestern landscape, created in the 3D graphics program Vue d'Esprit by artist Jayne Wilson. Horse lovers will enjoy this clock.

Out of the Void Poster by Bebops
I am constantly astonished and entranced by the myriad forms of life on this planet. To quote one of my very favorite authors, Annie Dillard, in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "the creator has pizzazz".
I hope to display a variety of animal images on this blog to delight us all. I have created many products featuring wildlife and pets for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous animal products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
