Songs of the Right Whales


On December 5, there is a celebration at the Jacksonville Sea Pavilion; the North Atlantic Right Whales are returning! They are coming back to calve and enjoy the gentle North Florida coastline. These graceful creatures are intriguingly mysterious; looking into their eyes, as they appear on film, gives me the sense I am meeting them face to face, soul to soul. "Songs of the Right Whales," a block print, is my humble attempt to honor them.
So, if you are in the area, pop by in person! Or, if you are far away, check out www.rightwhalefestival.org
Have a great and festive week! ; )

your stuff is so lovely...

when i was doing my business i absolutely hated it when people would make suggestions to me: why don't you make cookies sweetened with prunes! why don't you use only agave syrup! why don't you....!

i was like...becasue you are the only person who would buy it and you will only buy ONE!!!!

so, i hesitate to suggest this...but....what about doing a set of notecards or postcards or a calendar? i do love giving notecards as gifts.

just a suggestion. please don't hate me for it.

much love-deva
