Average Rating (5 Stars):

The bag is lovely, great printing and sturdily made. BUT I gave it 4 stars because it would be so much better if the bag had pockets, or sections, so it could be more of a travel or beach bag, not just a big undivided tote. The quality is excellent, lets get more items that are "printable".

I chose the name of "Papa Grande" as the largest and most majestic male on the left seemed to be the grand papa as he watches over the other members of his family. The rust colored "hat" outlined in white and topped off with one distinct black feather are the easily recognized features of the male quail. One female in the center of the picture illustrates a much duller plumage as she would be less visible on the nest. They are delightful to watch. Included in the drawing are prickly pear cactus with yellow flowers and buds on the pads filled with long, sharp spines or thorns. In the background the viewer can find a soft image of the saguaro cactus as well as th...

About Marilyn Smith

Thank you for stopping by my gallery! I am currently residing in Chandler, Arizona and have previously exhibited in galleries in Arizona and Wisconsin. Having lived in both states, it has given me very diverse subject matter as is evident in the variety of art pieces I have posted here.

While working for the Dean Medical Center in Madison, WI, I completed several commission pieces to be displayed in their clinics ("Comin' Home", "The Catch", "Little Mill", and Christine's Ride"). I also created their employee birthday card for...
