Special Feature: Bebops

Today is time for a special feature, and I chose Julie Copenhagen's Bebops for the spotlight. You only get a small preview here, so I highly recommend visiting Bebops store to get a full sense of the flavors of nature and the exquisite harmony as found in her artwork.
Library Stacks Postcards Penguins Trucker Hats

Library Stacks. This postcard takes you on a walk down a long aisle of books in the stacks of a huge library. The bright lighting reveals book spines in a kaleidoscope of colors: red, green, blue, black, white, gold, brown, purple. The symmetrical angle creates a geometric design that seems to lead to infinity. The reflections on the freshly waxed floor contribute to the overall pattern.

Penguins. This hat features two adorable African Penguins standing on a rocky ledge. They are aquatic, flightless birds whose wings have become flippers. Each has a black stripe and black spots on the chest. The pattern of spots is unique for every penguin, just like human fingerprints. They have pink glands above their eyes and pink and black feet.

This set of playing cards features a female green frog with a yellow belly sitting among the grasses at the pond. She seems lonely as if she is waiting for her Prince Charming to appear. Perhaps she's a fairy tale princess ... :-)

This decorative mousepad features an adaptation of a fine art painting of a small street in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, by the American artist, Anna Unterman. The bright, sunny scene is a riot of colors. There is a red, pink and magenta bougainvillea vine over the archway as well as orange flame vines and other green shrubs and leaves. The colorful buildings are yellow, gold, blue and green. Reprinted with permission from the estate of Anna Unterman. All rights reserved.

This lovely Caseable iPad case features a mirror image of a beautiful purple finch sitting high up on a branch, surrounded by green leaves. He has a brilliant red head and a pale pink breast. His sturdy beak is perfect for cracking seeds. He is the bird that the famous ornithologist, Roger Tory Peterson, described as a “sparrow dipped in raspberry juice.”
