I created this calendar for Bebop's Place from photos of the lovely little creatures I see all summer. My garden is a world of light, color and movement. The flowers and vegetables shine with beauty...and the little creatures amaze me in their infinite variations of shape, form and action. I have tried to capture these lovely little beings with my photography and have compiled the best for this 2011 calendar. I hope you will join me in the marvelous land of the giant swallowtail, hoverfly, tiger swallowtail, damselfly, cranefly, least skipper butterfly, grasshopper, Aphrodite fritillary butterfly, polyphemus moth, honeybee, ruby meadowhawk dragonfly and bush katydid nymph.
Here is a lovely poster by sfcount. She says, "Digitally altered from my original painting of a cherry blossom branch, I've converted the image to shades of gray with just a touch of pink on the blooms. To the print, I've added a poem I wrote".
This Apache Blessing poster by The Shy Muse really moved me. Both design and words are lovely. Our interconnectedness with the beauty of Mother Nature is beautifully acknowledged in encouraging and caring words. Appropriate for many occasions--weddings, retirement, graduations, moving, anniversaries...any kind of turning point in life that garners well wishes.
Welcome to Bebop's Place
Beauty has been defined as "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Since our responses are totally subjective, I can only speak to what moves me.
I want to share the beauty! I have created a variety of floral products 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 floral 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.
