Peacock Magic Greeting Cards

 

“Peacock Magic” – Photo Greeting Cards of peacocks & a peacock painting/collage art of mine.  We all love peacock’s beauty – the magic shimmer of their feathers & the fan that is displayed when they open their tail all captivate our imagination like they are a creature from an Arabian Nights fairy tale. 

These peacock photographs were shot at the San Diego Zoo where wild peacocks walk the trails with visitors.  “Peacock Jewel Tapestry” is a Japanese brush painting with gelli prints and a watercolor background all collaged together to create layers of beauty & magic. 

These “Peacock Magic” greeting cards are perfect to use for any occasion.  The inside of the cards are blank and each card back is hand-stamped with either a dolphin or pelican motif, which has been hand-carved & printed by Nancy Lee Artist By-the-Sea.  Each card is 6 ½” x 5” with a 6” x 4” photo.  These cards could also be easily framed to give as gifts or display in your home!

A set of six cards costs $20 plus shipping & handling.  At this time, these cards are only available for purchase direct from the artist on Etsy.

SAN DIEGO ZOO – Tigers, Flamingos, Pandas & Peacocks Oh My!

Tigers, Peacocks, Flamingos & Pandas – Oh My!  Such beauty at the San Diego Zoo.  It was wonderful spending time with some of the volunteers there, too.  I was happily surprised at all the education given to visitors there now.  The educational exhibits are wonderful and some are interactive, too.  Sometimes the animals couldn’t be seen because the foliage in their enclosures gives them the opportunity to stay out of sight.  Really the San Diego Zoo is evolving in the right direction!  

Harbor Seal Pup Defends Self From a Mean Ole’ Sea Gull

As if the two month old and weaned Harbor seal pups don’t have enough on their minds, they still have to watch out for the pesky sea gulls who still seem to like trying to nip a pup’s tail.  First the nip, then the pup turns around and says “Cut it out!”.  Then the pup turns and a face to face stand off takes place until the gull finally walks off to find something else to do.  Check out the pups face because they are molting now and this is a great shot of a face half molted and half furry!
