Just Be-claws

Today I had the pleasure of bringing the Lobster Claw and Crab Claw to Earth Fare for sale in the lovely art supporting community of Fairlawn, Ohio. The warm welcome and tender care in hanging my art by Helen and Dan was an experience in true highest joy. If you are in Akron over the next several weeks, do come in and shop at a full Earth integrity store with my ocean energy art enhanced by Doug Meyer‘s custom recycled metal frames on the walls. There are other artists work on display as well, and the fantastic, high window lighted, free wi-fi cafe makes it a gorgeous place to work and socialize. xxooYabette

Affordable Alchemy for All

“Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge

to all the generations of the world.” — Leonardo Da Vinci

I have been browsing Airbnb lately as I plan a short trip to NYC this summer. It was interesting to run across a listing in which the feedback complaints were about the lack of art. People are recognizing more and more how necessary art is to creating an inspiring environment. The highest priced places were the most colorful, with an artful presentation that brings a relaxed joy to the eyes.

With this in mind, I have been looking for ways to offer more affordable options of my own art, yet retaining a quality and presentation that is tasteful and lasting. So after researching and testing, I have found the solution with high quality art prints on stretched canvas. These are available in my shop listed by size and shape. For example, this “Joie de Vivre” Oil 48×60″ original is available for $3000. But you can get a high quality canvas print version ready-to-hang and delivered to your door in a 30×40″ size for $300 plus shipping. Or get the small version for your bath at an easy $100.
