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.
Reprint of original acrylic painting: Bird Landing. The bird with rainbow colors (red wings, yellow breast, blue and purple on the face) has a ruby rhinestone for it's eye. The eye catches the light. The bird is just about to land on the branch of a tree. The background is created with strokes of all the rainbow colors, predominantly in blues.
This tote bag features a black and white silhouette modern abstract pattern of a Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) perched on a bare branch high in a tree. This bird is actually a kind of small, gray and white sparrow.
