Zebra From Anotha Motha

Zebra From Anotha Motha
Prints available in my Etsy Store
This zebra smacks of edgy attitude. He had to be navy and flourescent orange- he could settle for nothing less. The old adage is not true. A leopard can change his spots and a zebra can change his stripes. Every day we have opportunity to create a new, fresh, vibrant sparkle to the world. We can change and we can create the life we want.

He will be one of my entries in the Roswell Art Show if he gets juried in and accepted.
Keep your fingers crossed. We'll know something in June. I'll keep you updated with posts of my other new paintings that I've submitted.

Farming is going full speed around here and I'm soon heading to Texas to pick up my grandsons for a visit. WooHOO!

I hope your summer is brave and new and daring. I intend to make mine one to remember!

"The Zebra Question" by Shel Silverstein
 
I asked the zebra,
Are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times?
Or quite with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days?
Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways?
Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on
An on and on he went.
I'll never ask a zebra
About stripes
Again.
 
Not so silly, huh?
