This is a reproduction print of my original painting "Starlight". 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 (won't smudge) and lightfast (won't fade!) 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.

My prints are ******NOT****** sold framed, but if you'd like some easy & affordable framing tips, please just ask!

------------------------------------

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

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. :)

Frequently asked questions about thedreamygiraffe

Unfortunately, I am unable to accommodate rush orders. Standard prints will be put in the mail within 2-3 business days of payment, and delivery time will depend on your location. If you purchase a print that requires customization or personalization, your custom print will be put into the mail 2-3 business days after you've approved the proof.

Within the United States, your package will usually arrive within one week after shipping (many times much quicker!). Prints shipped outside the country can take quite a bit longer and there may be delays due to customs, so please consider this if you need your order in a hurry.

If you need your art for a specific event or an occasion, please place your order well in advance.
