The Holiday season is coming.  Let me tell you what artistic products we are offering this year at

A.  Holiday Cards

Five new winter-themed cards based on snow-covered mountain or desert locales.

B. Our Kids Book

Again, we offer our A Kid’s Guide to Some California Critters.  The Second Edition received good reviews from purchasers.  The book includes trivia and information about many California animals and especially desert animals.

C. The Tree

For the first time ever, we are offering a limited edition of “Lone Tree – Eastern Arkansas”, our most widely viewed (over 45,000 times) and favorited (450 times) photo on Flickr.

D. Roy’s Collection

We are offering a three photo set from our Roy’s Cafe collection.  As a reminder, Roy’s Cafe is a well known landmark in Amboy, CA, on what was US66, and a place where movies such as The Hitcher (1986), Kalifornia (1993), and Beneath the Dark (2010) were filmed. The three picture set includes our famous Roy’s Cafe selective colorization shot which won honorable mention at the 2009 Orange County Fair.  Also included in the set is another selective colorization rendering of the cabins at Roy’s and a full color image of the Roy’s sign with backing clouds.  All images are 11″ by 14″.  These pictures are not available separately.

E.  New Photos

We have swapped out many older pictures for different newer ones, such as Crayons of Capitola , the Salinas River and pictures from Arizona.

G.  Discounted

We are discounting some of our overstock products.

H.  Shipping

Any order made before December 1st will have free shipping and guaranteed pre-holiday delivery (code 2010)
