This poster is a study of beauty and the beast. A perfectly lovely golden orange dahlia is being visited by a green, yellow and black Spotted Cucumber Beetle who is emerging from underneath some petals. The beetle is somewhat camouflaged because the colors of the flower and the insect are very similar. Although they look as harmless as ladybugs, they are a major agricultural pest insect, nibbling the leaves of many important vegetable crops.
This crane fly mousepad displays a simple, almost abstract pattern with minimal colors of brown, black and gray.
From the artist: Brighten Your Day - Freckles in Flowers II is a tuxedo kitty who sits in a field of flowers on the side of a hill. Blossoms of crimson reds, pretty pink poppies, lavender heather and white dogwood surround this black and white cat, both on the ground and falling from the heavens. Freckles has mostly black fur, white paws and whiskers and little dab of white on his kitten mouth. Bright blue flowers falling from the sky give an extra sparkle to the dappled gray background. You may experience peace, serenity and healing as you look at my work. He is part of my Fanciful Animal Images series. Freckles has been my beloved animal companion for 18 years.At the animal shelter he came right over and insisted on going home. When I went to the shelter, Freckles came right over and brushed against me – and then he walked away. He did this several times. To me, that said this tiny tux kitty was both independent and loving. And that has turned out to be so true! This image of Freckles is a delightful addition to any family with his elegance and charm - whether next to your computer on a mouse pad, mug, notebook, gift box, puzzle, plate, or a shirt, tote bag, iPad cover, card or on your living room wall.
This poster features two bay draft horses gleaming in the sunshine, with black feathers, in harness.
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.
