Get a Piece of the Rock – Coquina Rock!

Travel between St. Augustine and Palm Beach and you are likely to see lots of Coquina Rocks. But how much do you really know about them?  Probably not much.

The one above is located within our condo complex. It was one of the largest I’ve seen – It stands about 7′ tall; 5′ wide and weighs about 13,000 pounds. With a little research, I found that these stones are between 12 thousand and 2 million years old. The perfectly cylindrical holes are not manmade – they are formed naturally.

A century ago, the rocks were used to make many of the old buildings you see in St. Augustine and the Sugar Mills in the Daytona Beach area. Some are still used as natural seawalls today.  We were fortunate that many of the larger ones, like the one above, were saved when they excavated for homes and buildings. They make beautiful, natural sculptures.

I love it and I painted it and now you can have this piece of history in your home or office.  Everything from high quality giclee reprints to tote bags to bedspreads and coffee mugs are available and can be ordered by clicking on either image below.

If you are still reading,  here’s a special for you. I have a limited edition of 25, signed 8×10 giclee prints in an 11×14 mat, ready for framing for $30, including shipping in the continental US. Each includes a certificate of authenticity and a detailed history of the Coquina Rock. Email me at, Debbie@OwnADebbie.com for details or to order yours.

And yes. The original is available! You’ll find it on www.DeborahBoydGallery.com along with many other original, affordable paintings.

A Thank You card they will Thank You for

5 Shades of Gray

It’s the ultimate thank you card!  The recipient gets a beautiful card from you,  and on the inside, a signed, miniature version of my original work! The  surprise gift for the recipient is on the inside. Above your message is the same giclee print that’s appears on the front of the card, but this is signed by the artist(That’s me!) and ready for framing!

Each card measures 3.5 x 4.75.  There are 10 cards and 10 envelopes in each set.  Every card will carry a signature on the inside, the name of the artist. (Yes..me!) and my signature.

There is only one set of each available.  $20, including shipping in the continental US.   Contact me at, Debbie@OwnADebbie.com

This is the Thank You card they will Thank you for!

Hibiscus

Tern Around; Look at Me

“Tern Around, Look at Me”, click above to enter our giclée gallery.

While all my originals are available for sale on www.DeborahBoydGallery.com, this site is where you get high quality reprints.

One advantage of ordering a giclee is that you have a choice of sizes. For example, the original of “Tern Around Look at Me” is a Little Debbie – just 12×4 in size, ideal for a desk, but not on a wall.  With a reprint, you can get one large enough to stretch across your sofa as seen here.

I invite you to look at my giclee gallery and see all the wonderful things you can do to dress up a tired home.  In addition to high quality, fine art prints, you’ll find everything from bedspreads to tote bags.

The Ultimate Thank You

It’s the ultimate thank you card!  The recipient gets a beautiful card from you,  a miniature version of my original work, ‘Hibiscus’.  But the  surprise gift for them is on the inside. Above your message is the same giclee print that’s appears on the front of the card, but this is signed by the artist(Me!) and ready for framing! Imagine ‘Hibiscus’ in a 3.5×5 frame!

Each card measures 3.5 x 4.75.  There are 10 cards and 10 envelopes in this set.  Every card will carry a signature on the inside.

There is only one set available.  $20, including shipping in the continental US.   Contact me at, Debbie@OwnADebbie.com

I Have Toilet Paper!

Papier du Toilette

 

It’s been a tough month for art sales with an even tougher month to come. I had very few scheduled events to begin with and of course, now they have all been cancelled. Not that I was advocating moving forward with them, especially since I have chosen to self quarantine for at least the next two weeks. No. I’m not sick, but I am over 60 and I do have a compromised immune system.

I live in hurricane prone Florida and it was just a month ago we stocked up on supplies for the coming season, which just so happens to have been a good move, given the current corona virus situation. That said, I have plenty of toilet paper and I plan to keep every bit of it here. But, pssst….since you are reading this, I will let you in on a little secret: I am willing to part with three rolls of toilet paper – limit one pack per person – for the first 25 people who respond – and pay for them! That’s right. You can get “Papier du Toilette” in a strictly limited edition of 25, numbered and signed by the artist (that would be me!) and shipped to your door anywhere in the continental U.S. for just $25, including postage and handling. You get an 8×10 in an 11×14 mat, ready for framing. You will never be without toilet paper in your bath again!

Eau de Toilettes

If you have the toilet paper, but prefer the toilet, I can help with that too! “Eau de Toilettes”, My Warhol version of all things toilet, is also available in a limited edition of 25, signed, numbered and ready to ship.

Since I now have plenty of time to work on my websites, I should have it set up to order directly from here in the next couple of weeks. Hey, I am painting toilets and toilet paper…I have plenty of time!  Until then, please leave a comment and I will get back with you asap!
