This is a reproduction print of my original painting "Starlight" which has been tweaked digitally to become "Starbright".

● SIZE: 8" x 10" image is centered on 8.5" x 11" (21.59 cm x 27.94 cm) paper. There is a white border around all sides, as pictured.

● MATERIALS: My prints are printed with fade resistant bright and vibrant inks on an archival quality paper with a luster finish that enhances the colors and ensures they'll be just as beautiful years from now as they are on the day they're printed.

● SHIPPING: Shipped to you via USPS First Class Mail in a clear archival sleeve within a rigid mailer.

● ADDITIONAL INFO: Art is printed to order by me to ensure that each is perfectly perfect and signed and dated on the back. Please note that colors vary from monitor to monitor, so the colors on the print you receive may look slightly different than what you see on screen...but I guarantee they will be beautiful.

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. :)
