Hooray! My 1st print, "Vibrance", in the series "Four Seasons" is ready! I am very happy with it. It will only be available through the end of January. I already have the 2nd in the series ready to go, but it will not be available until December 1st.
This is printed with archival pigment inks on 100% rag museum quality paper. The print measures 12"x12". Please remember that moniters can vary the colors from the true image. But I can tell you, this is FULL of autumn colors.
You can purchase the print through me at the moment until I get it in my gallery. You can also purchase various gifts with the image on it at www.zazzle.com/FromArtToZebras* . This includes magnets, mugs, tshirts and more. Check it out!

This is an 11x14 pencil portrait of my son that I am working on. Sometimes I forget how soothing drawing can be. Until my daughter sees this, then I will have to hurry and do her one. I wonder if I can hide this so hers can be peaceful as well? Probably not...lol.
I am taking commissions for holiday gifts on a first come, first served basis if you would like a portrait of your own. Delivery date, depending on when started, will be no later than 12/18. You can just email me a photo and I will let you know how long it will be. firstname.lastname@example.org

One of my nieces is turning 12 this month. That in between age is sometimes difficult to come up with ideas for. Most girls this age don't want anything "babyish" and definitely not "old ladyish"!
I came up with this series to fit in with this in between group. It has a bit of sophistication, without too much formality. I can see using it for a sleepover, especially a Twilight sleepover! Since most kids this age don't like anything TOO organized, how about some movie trivia? Or come dressed as your favorite character, or even a murder mystery? Love it!
Feel free to contact us if you need help coming up with more ideas for your tween's party!

I had fun making these cute little monster invitations. I love the scooby-doo colors that give it kind of a retro look. They could be used for a halloween party invite or a monster theme birthday party. They are 5.5"w and 8.5"h and include kraft paper envelope.
At our last monster theme party, we had the kids design their own little monsters out of terry cloth in bright colors. They turned out looking like ugly doll knock offs. Super cute and a BIG hit! Let me know if we can help with your monster or halloween party. We would be deFRIGHTed! Okay, that was corny, lol! --Michelle
