    Quality 11" x 14" reproduction on paper of one of Liza's beautiful paintings with personalized signature.
    Choose:
    1) "Out of the Shadows": A curiously contented moose emerging from forest shadows into a marsh surrounded with blooming wetland flowers.
    2) "Otters at the Water's Edge": two sleek, handsome otters playing near water and cattails.
    3) "Heron with Red Osier Dogwood": a formal circular portrait of a Great Blue Heron with a background of cattails and dogwood berries. For some reason this one reminds me of Gilbert Stuart's portrait of George Washington.
    4) "Floating" depicts a peaceful frog floating on the surface of a summer pond, viewed at eye level, partially underwater, partially above.
