This is a reproduction print of my original painting "Starlight" which has been tweaked digitally to become "Starbright". It 8.5" X 11"(21.59 cm x 27.94 cm), which includes a white border around all sides, as pictured. The actual image area is 8" x 10".

It's printed with fade resistant inks on a heavy weight luster paper that is water resistant and lightfast with a semi-glossy, ever-so-slightly shimmery finish, which makes the bright colors absolutely dazzling.

Prints are signed and dated on the back and shipped via USPS First Class Mail in an archival protective sleeve within a stiff mailer.

This little lady can now also be purchased as a figurine, as a part of my "Sweet Smiles by Kathy Jeffords" line produced by The Bradford Exchange! They are not sold on Etsy as they are not handmade by me, but you can see her in the second picture in this listing! Thanks to Jana E. Pye for the wonderful photography!

And, at last, the story of "Starlight/Starbright":

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Aja, who lived in a kingdom full of traditions and customs. One of these customs was, when a young man wanted to marry a young lady, he climbed, climbed, climbed way up into the skies, almost to Heaven itself, to retrieve a star to give to the girl's father, in exchange for her hand in marriage. There was no proposal or ring or even inquiring as to whether the girl wished to marry this particular fellow or even at all.

Aja always thought this tradition was, well, icky at best, but it never even occurred to her that something could be DONE about it, until her best friend Lane was told she was going to be the bride of some awful boy named Henry, who laughed like a mule, smelled like pepperoni (which is good for a pizza, but not a husband!) hogged the remote, and was rumored to kick puppies.

Aja went to the king and begged and pleaded with him to make a change and finally, finding her tiresome, he waved her away, telling her that if she could climb, climb, climb and bring him back a star, that he would institute a kingdomwide ruling that marriages would only occur if both parties truly desired the union. Of course, all the king's men (and the king's horses!) guffawed with laughter, because girls can't climb trees, much less high enough in the sky to retrieve a star.

Well...that's Aja in the painting, clutching the star...so I guess you know how that story ended. :)
