Christmas with a twist of "Zebra" and a hint of "Leopard"

Every year my collections and new "functional art" items with zebra and leopard expand to a new dimension. Some might call it tacky or some might call it silly. However, for me it's simply a fun design that I enjoy having around.

Naughty Snow Chic Art by GG Burns here:

and here at ImageKIND:

Animal print seems to be my trademark after all these years, since I have decorated my apartments and homes with it since the late 70s. Rarely can I paint a horse, snowman or cat without a hint of zebra or leopard appearing somewhere.

Purchase this design here: 

Pinterest has become a great escape and a place crafty, DIY, decorating concepts spin from one person to another. Recently I expanded on one crafter's photo of Christmas tree topiaries using zebra and leopard print wrapping paper and gave them my own twist, adding a real vintage belt from the 70s and red fur. 

Steps on how to make a Christmas Tree Topiary can be viewed here:http://www.52mantels.com/2011/11/wrapping-paper-christmas-tree-topiaries.html

Since a lot of my own art and designs incorporate "animal print" -- it's easy to decorate while attempting to sprinkle holiday cheer. I hope all of your Christmas wishes come true ~ with a magical twist of "Zebra" and a hint of "Leopard".

Happy Holidays with GG's Tropical Flamingo Art!

Baby it's cold outside. Each year when the cold northwesterly winds begin to blow here in Kentucky  I long to be a snow bird and head south! 

One way I cope with the cold, is by sketching and painting palm trees, tropical birds or other whimsical creations.

If you would like to purchase custom "functional art" featuring any of my flamingos please send me a text on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/ggs.art.  

Additionally, hand-signed prints of any of my flamingo designs can be purchased online with Paypal. Please text me on Facebook for more info. 

The original watercolor of both the "pretty in pink" and "fabulous flaming flamingo" are SOLD.

31 days of Fall-o-ween!

Although Autumn is typically packed full with difficult challenges in my personal life, I try to remember that "October is my favorite color".  Which means, I never leave home without a camera.  As soon as I can find the time and energy in August, I typically decorate my home with pumpkins, gourds, crows, black cats and all sorts of witchy art.  Anything with a witch hat is my favorite. Below are some of my favorite Autumn photographs, (and links to my stores) of some of my favorite hand painted coasters or trivets or witchy designs -- inspired by the season. Enjoy. gg

I made this photo in on my brother's horse ranch -- the colors are why I love fall. 

This photo is somewhere in TN, made on I-75 while traveling.
