I’m delighted to say that 2016 has begun with the news that I have sold a metal print of Burnished Tigers at Redbubble. I’ve never sold a metal print before – it feels rather good!

What doesn’t feel good is the continuing danger to so many species on this earth, not least our own.

‘A hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there are as few as 3,200.’

‘As more and more forests are cleared for paper and palm oil, tiger habitat disappears daily.’

Save Tigers Now is a global campaign by World Wildlife Fund and Leonardo DiCaprio. Our goal is to build political, financial and public support to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger.’

Available at the following galleries:
Redbubble
Crated
Zazzle US
Zazzle UK
Fine Art America
Fine Art England
Saatchi Art

Take care and keep laughing!

This is the fourth in my new bird collection using images from the Biodiversity Heritage Library on Flickr. I have used the same background as for Whirring Pheasant Springs and The Cuckoo’s Note but am not using a poetical quote for its title: a ruddy duck it is and a Ruddy Duck it shall be, partly because it’s such a euphonious and satisfying phrase to say out loud.

The Ruddy Duck, or the Erismatura bird is, I have discovered (and wait for me to forget because as sure as eggs is eggs…) is found in North America and the Andes Mountains in South America (thank you, Wikipedia). They migrate in winter to coastal bays and unfrozen lakes and ponds. As for sustenance, their diet consists of the seeds and roots of aquatic plants, along with aquatic insects and crustaceans, which they secure by diving and swimming underwater. Sounds like fun.

For my next trick I will probably give you four butterfly images!

Update: The butterflies will come after the fourth one as I’ve just realised that this is the third in the series and I need to do number four! I can’t count.

Available soon!

Take care and keep laughing!

Over wide streams and mountains great we went,
And, save when Bacchus kept his ivy tent,
Onward the tiger and the leopard pants,
With Asian elephants:
Onward these myriads–with song and dance,
With zebras striped, and sleek Arabians’ prance,
Web-footed alligators, crocodiles,
Bearing upon their scaly backs, in files,
Plump infant laughers mimicking the coil
Of seamen, and stout galley-rowers’ toil:
With toying oars and silken sails they glide,
Nor care for wind and tide.
John Keats — Song of the Indian Maid from Endymion

A quick post to show some of my latest tinkering!  This image was created with vintage flowers from The Graphics Fairy and my own backgrounds and textures. I do love creating an image with rich, golden yellows.  As colour genius Karen Haller says, it’s the colour of happiness.  ‘Yellow can boost your self-esteem and self-confidence, leaving you feeling full of optimism and positivity.’  It certainly does that for me, Karen.
