If I Were The Worlds Tallest Mammal…

I would be the beautiful and poised giraffe.  They’re legs alone are taller than many humans.  They can run as fast as 35 miles an hour.  Their tongues are long as well, reaching 21 inches, which helps them pluck leaves and buds in the tree tops.  They can eat hundreds of pounds of leaves each week.  They actually regurgitate their food and chew it as cud.  They only drink once every several days because they get most of their water from the luscious leaves they consume.
Female giraffes give birth standing up, which makes for a rude welcome for the newborn baby giraffe.  They fall more than 5 feet to the ground during birth.  What a way to be welcomed to the world!  The baby giraffe is able to stand in half an hour after birth and run with their mothers just ten hours after birth.
They are breath taking animals.  Here are some gorgeous photographs and art of this beautiful mammal we call the giraffe.
 

 

 

Panda Bear Love

Oh how I love these beautiful black and white panda bears! They are so adorably cute, but can be just as dangerous as any other bear. Pandas can weigh up to 250 pounds. The beautiful pandas are listed as endangered in the World Conservation Union’s Red List of threatened species. There are about 1,600 left in the wild. More than 300 live in zoos, mostly in China.
The World Wildlife Fund is the primary international conservation organization protecting pandas and their habitat. To make a donation in support of WWF’s global conservation efforts, visit:  http://gifts.worldwildlife.org/gift-center/gifts/Species-Adoptions/Panda.aspx
I wanted to share some amazing photographs and artwork of these beautiful animals. I’m sure you’ll agree, that they are one of a kind animals that we really need to protect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Circle Of Life… well just circles! :)

I have been sitting on this design for at least a year now.  I finally decided to finish it up.  The soft pastel colors remind me of spring.  

 

Everything comes full circle.  What comes around goes around.  The circle of life.

It is amazing what is formed by circles through nature.  The sun, moon, planets,  and so much more.  

If you just take a look around, you will see an endless amount of circles.   I happen to come across some beautiful throw pillows, that show cases the wonderful geometric shape.

Happy First Day Of Spring!!  

Awe… finally!  It has been the longest winter I think I’ve ever endured.  Of course Mother Nature had to give us some snow this morning!!  Ugh!!  But, at least it’s too warm to keep it on the ground.  We do have so much to look forward to!  

The one positive thing about living in the Midwest, we have new seasons to look forward to.  Just wish we could skip winter!  At least we have several months of warmth coming, before we have to deal with old man winter again!  

I found this beautiful photograph of tulips!  Now this image makes me want to smile.  You can find many more beautiful photography at Zazzle! 

Happy Spring everyone! 😉

 

Friendship :)

Friendship is so precious. It is a true blessing.  A true friend is someone who is always there for you, in good times and bad.  You can go for days, months, or even years without speaking, and the one day you do speak, it’s like you haven’t missed a beat.  Everything falls back into place, from where you left off.  Cherish the friends you have.  Be sure to show gratitude towards these relationships.  

So with friendships in mind, here is my latest painting.  I thought they would make a great pair, the caterpillar and his buddy, the ladybug.  I wonder what will happen with their friendship, once the caterpillar changes his looks?  

If it’s a true friendship, nothing will change. 🙂Uncommon Friends

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2014 :~)

Well, if this is not a sign of Spring, then I don’t know what is!  I CAN NOT wait for the first day of Spring, as I’m sure all that live in the Midwest would agree.  It has been one brutal winter for us.  I’m tired of looking at the white stuff!   Well St. Patty’s Day will be here soon!  I created a Irish Ladybird for everyone to enjoy.  She is fashionable too, wearing her orange colored Uggs!!  Can’t have enough four leaf clovers.  Who doesn’t love a little luck!  Wishing you much of that, and always happiness!

Happy Valentine’s Day ~ 2014

As Valentine’s Day draws near, I decided to create a Love bug painting.  Here we have two Ladybugs standing in the thick green grass.  Mr. Ladybird is giving his Ladybug a gift of heart shaped balloons.  It was a lot of fun creating these two bugs.  I used my wonderful ArtRage software, using water colors, and some fun tools to create the balloons, grass, and clouds.  Wishing you and yours a very Happy Valentine’s Day this Friday!   🙂
Will U Be Mine?

Happy 2014!! :)

WOW!  2013 is gone forever!!  These years are flying by so very fast for me.  Especially once I had my twins, ten years ago.  I wanted to start out the new year with my newest addition to my art collection, The Prismatic Crested Owl and his little one.  I created this painting digitally, using many mediums.  I think owls are fascinating and majestic, definitely my favorite bird.

Well here is to a new year!  

Wishing you and yours a healthy, wealthy, and very happy 2014!  🙂

Merry Christmas :0)

Well today is Christmas Eve.  My kiddos are already tracking Mr. Claus this morning.  Gotta love technology!  I wanted to post a couple of my most recent holiday paintings.  Created digitally, using many mediums.  From water colors, to airbrush.  
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
