As you see, there was much merriment. I haven't seen Loki get quite so excited. Sky immediately began playing fetch with hers, then took it over to the easy chair for some quality playtime.

The rising sun illuminates Monarch butterflies and blossoming tree branches, covered in cherry blossoms. The tree branches have arc'd to form a peace sign in the lime green sky. Some of the petals are dancing in the sunrise. This hope-filled piece, part of the Zen Mandala modern art series (botanical visionary landscapes in a contemporary Asian style), is offered as a fine art pendant, hand crafted from one of my paintings.
An adjustable knotted cord is included so the piece is ready to wear and will fit most sizes (these are adjusted by sliding the knots and don't have a metal clasp). As they go over the head, these tend to hang long, although you can sometimes double them up once they're on. If you would prefer a cord of a particular length with a clasp instead, let me know at the time of the sale (no additional charge).

A path winds through magenta wildflowers, by a wind-swept cypress tree, on a bluff overlooking the ocean at Pacific Grove (near Carmel and Monterey). Seagulls fly through the white, fluffy clouds. This California seascape is an original acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" sides are finished off in blue acrylic)--no need to frame. It has been lightly varnished to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors. The copyright watermark does not appear on the actual painting.
