Announcement   >> ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!! SEE THIS ZEN BOOK OF HOURS PROJECT MAKE ITS GOAL AT http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/834546273/the-zen-book-of-hours?ref=live

A proud member of the MakingChange Team
and the European Street Team at Etsy!

Here you'll find prints and cards of all images: paintings and the Zen Book of Hours series (see also its own shop for the originals: www.ZenBookofHours.etsy.com ).

ZEN BOOK INFO:
These little paintings are part of a larger project. The series is inspired by an earlier work, Zen Pine Needles, in which I painted many small watercolor portraits of individual pine needles. It was a Zen exercise to get me through some tough times, finding the deep love in those little things we overlook in our daily rushing lives. Here we are in tough times again, and this path is a way through the maze.

For this project I’ve undertaken to make a new painting for each day, again a portrait of some little botanical detail that’s commonly overlooked. The palette will change with the seasons and at the end I’ll publish a fat little book, each page containing one meditational image for the day. That will be the Zen Book of Hours.
This is a modern version of the Medieval Book of Hours, a tradition of handmade illuminated books containing prayers and illustrations for each day, or seven times a day (the Hours), in order that the owner could pray in concert with monasteries throughout Europe.

In this case the calligraphy is Nature’s, without human words.
The resulting book will be a way in which the owners, scattered through the world, can be mindful in concert with each other and these Garden Sprites in further years. These little paintings are themselves seeds.

"SNAKE BATH": is the direct translation of Schlangenbad, the little town in Germany where I live most of the time. Me and the snakes.
For more than a thousand years it's been a healing place ("bad" or bath/spa), with hot mineral springs bubbling through the steep little valley on the edge of the Rheingau. The Romans brought their temple snakes, Äskulapnatter (Zamenis longissimus), and they went native. It's the only place in northern Europe that these snakes live. These snakes are depicted on the medical symbol, caduceus, from the temple of Äsklepius, student of Chiron.

EURO SHOPPERS: Please see my Shop Policies section for payment in Euros. I'll make it easy and familiar for you.

Hallo & welcome! Thanks for your interest.

I usually work with the printer on Mondays, ship on Thursdays & Fridays from Germany. To the U.S. I've found it takes 4 days, but it can be up to 10.

Currency need not be translated- U.S. buyers use my U.S. PayPal account or send a check, European buyers can send a bank transfer or use my alternate PayPal that's SET UP FOR EUROS (see below). This will save you the currency conversion costs.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
The way I've had to set this up is the SnakeBath shop goes directly to Euros, the ZenBookofHours shop is in US dollars. If you'd like a print from the other shop, convo or email me and I'll put it up especially for you.

PAYPAL does not require that you join them - you can use your credit card directly there, in either USD or Euros.

EUROS: the total is about 80% of the USD price. For example: a $25 print translates to 16+ Euros, then add the 19% tax = 20 Euros.
I have a PayPal account especially for Euros, which will save you the currency conversion cost. CHECK OUT as usual and check the Payment box marked "Other". Leave a message there for me choosing bank transfer or Euro-PayPal and I'll send you back the necessary info.

U.S. CHECKS: There's a U.S. address to send checks if you want to pay that way; it will be deposited there and after it clears the order's shipped.
Shipping
I'm shipping from Germany through the Postal system. If you want insurance, for whatever they charge, please let me know.

Each piece is wrapped in its own archival protective sleeve, sent in bend-proof mailer. Larger pieces will be sent rolled.

Customs fees (usually not applicable) are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please convo me or email if there seems to be a problem.
Returns accepted, minus shipping, if I'm contacted within 7 days of your receipt of goods.
If something's damaged in transit please save all original packaging materials.
Additional policies and FAQs
