Zebra Art: Spot
(The Over-Worked Time-Traveller)
A few days ago my pesky Resident Artist (and wife) popped out for a couple of hours, so I immediately stopped working - only for a moment you understand – just to draw breath.
As I sat there, gazing from my workshop window, I began to ponder three of life's really big questions:
Why do some fundamental particles have mass even though the symmetries controlling their interactions require them to be massless?
Do protons change shape at the speed of light? and;
Will it be sausages for tea?
Then something very odd began to happen. As I looked from my window, the view began to change: the sky quickly darkened; the treetops bent before a sudden squall; and snowflakes began to zip and swirl through the air like millions of furious white bees. Then, as my eyelids grew heavy, I felt myself begin to sink slowly into a vast... black... void...
Now, I understand lesser mortals might refer to what I'm describing as a 'nodding off' event. But of course, I knew it was nothing of the sort as, luckily, I was already very familiar with the initial induction phase of... Time Travel!
Yes, as you've probably guessed, I had undergone a Momentary Time Shift! (Note to Self: the phenomenon of MTS has manifested previously, but usually much later in the day - and only whilst lying on a large comfy sofa placed strategically in front of a television).
You see, initially when I sat down at my workshop desk I was gazing out on a beautiful spring day. Then, in the very next instant, I realised I'd crossed the space-time continuum and had travelled back in time to what looked like the depths of winter, as the view presented from my window now was that of a horizontal blizzard; something akin to a full-blown, sub-zero, Arctic white-out (or, if you live near Fraserburgh, an average Monday afternoon).
Shortly after this event everything once again faded to black as, presumably, I time-shifted once more and was delivered back to my workshop desk.
It was at exactly this point – as I peeled my moist cheek from the surface of the desk - when the first strains of a hideous noise began to leach into my head. I jarred upright, adjusted my eyes to the sunlight which now streamed through the window then, feeling very weary from all this time travel, I had a good old stretch and a well deserved yawn.
However the hideous din persevered. With every passing second it grew louder, more intense and even more shrill; each of those moments only serving to heighten my anxiety and feeling of impending doom.
In desperation to block the sound I clasped my hands to my ears, rocking too and fro. Then, as I turned, preparing to flee the building, I discovered the source of the racket.
The Resident Artist had returned and, even before closing the door behind her, was telling me how I just HAD to hear what a jolly time she and – EVERY – OTHER - SINGLE – PERSON had at the Insch Ladies Lunch!
My afternoon, dear reader... was ruined!
P. S. and it wasn't even sausages for tea :(
Oh, and, as you can see, she's also created this zebra print.
All of Angela's prints are now sent fitted in a FREE Double Mount and, better still, all of our mounts are made from Conservation Grade board.
Alas, this offer only applies to UK Postal Addresses.
Please Note: your delivery must be signed for, so please make sure there is normally someone at home or arrange for an alternate delivery address.
When you order a print from us the first thing we have to do is make it. But, as we do all of our own printing here in our own workshops, that's not a problem, as the person who receives your order is the same person who makes your print: me!
After your print has been produced, it has to dry. Once dry, I have to get the Artist to sign it. So this means a long walk all the way to the other end of the building, where I try to coax her (the artist) all the way back to my end of the building. Oh yes, I know it SOUNDS easy!
Anyway, after all that's done I then pack your print, beautifully, and book a collection with the courier company who will deliver it. Time-wise, this can now be two-to-three days after your initial order was placed (depending on the time of day you placed your order).
After your package has been collected from us the normal delivery service will take between three-to-five working days. So, as you can see, we don't even try to compete on speed of delivery - that's not what we're about. Something else best mentioned here is that your order is still subject to the standard credit clearance checks imposed by our on-line bank
Because each print is made to order, our website doesn't offer a Next Day Delivery service. We can deliver to you more quickly than stated above, but you'll need to call us to arrange this and, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear, it will cost you more. So if you need a quote for a faster delivery service please call us on: 01464 821 351 and we'll be happy to arrange this.
The majority of our UK Mainland orders are delivered flat packed but, for their added safety, extra large prints will be rolled into a four inch diameter tube. For UK Offshore and International orders, your prints, no matter what size, will probably also be delivered rolled into a tube. Please Note: for international deliveries we are not responsible for any further taxes, duties or charges to be paid to the receiving country's customs. These charges are the responsibility of you, the customer.
