SAMPLES OF PAINTINGS BY

THE ELF OFF THE SHELF IS BACK with holiday advice, and time-saving tips.  To save grief
later in the season, anchor your trees (Elf has 12 this year) to a fixed object, and don't load
up one side of the tree with all the ornaments.  If your tree is in front of a window, decorate
round and round.  A tree that can be seen from the outside does double duty.  If you have
pets, particularly cats (Elf has 2), don't hand tempting toys from the bottom branches.  Trees
that have themes are interesting as well as beautiful -- be creative, think outside the box
(tree)!

I'M SURE MOST OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT NELLIE RALAT , an area artist who lives in
Waverly Hall.  Nellie was attacked by a couple pit bulls while walking her dog.  The dogs had been
reported before, but apparently continue to run around unsupervised, and this time they attacked.  
Nellie's dog did not survive, and Nellie herself is in Atlanta hospital after spending a night in a
Columbus ICU.  There is a long road ahead for recuperation and recovery, not to mention the
nightmares the may  situation produce.

Backstretch Studio Presents
A New, Unique and Affordable Gift for the Animal lovers on your list

Small Canvas Reproductions - Signed and Numbered
Small Canvas Reproductions - Signed and Numbered

Looking for a gift that is unique... Something out of the ordinary and special for an animal lover? This could be the
answer. Choose from a selection of eleven signed and numbered reproductions of paintings of horses, dogs and
cats from our Canvas Mini Collection. Each 8"x10" reproduction is signed (on the back) and numbered from editions
limited to seventy-five. Gallery wrapping covers the edges so they can be hung without a frame, or if framing is
preferred, placed in readily available 8"X10" standard frames. Jump to the Canvas Mini Collection and pick one out.

Priced at only $60, this just might be the perfect gift.

Price Drop on Reproductions

We began using a different printing company to reproduce our artwork on November 10th. These giclée prints are at
the highest, museum quality reproduction standards, yet now available to us at significantly lower prices and we are
passing those savings on to you. For example, prints that had cost $150 are now $83.50. It will take time to get every
item repriced. We have just begun and the process will take several weeks to complete. So, if you don't see "**New
Pricing** above the "Add to Cart" button, email us telling us which item(s) have your interest, and we will make the
change to that item overnight.

Have a Wonderful Holiday Season & Visit your favorite Animal Shelter over the holidays... You just might find your
new best friend!

WARNING TO EXHIBITORS:  Those gold leaf frames look great on your paintings, but beware!  Even a post-it note will remove the
gold leaf, and render your frame useless, unless you are skilled in re-applying gold leaf.  Museum goop or anything STICKY will
damage the frame. Scotch tape is deadly!  If you must stick something on your frame,or someone elses frame, put it on the back in
a safe place!
Greetings to all!  As some of you may know, I have been in and out (mostly in) of various hospitals in
Columbus since early December.  It was sudden, and I'm not sure how I contracted the condition, but it's going
to take a serious re-boot to get going again.  I am very disappointed in the quality of health care here in
Columbus, and there are no alternatives.  The privatization of health car facilities appears to be largely to
blame.  As I get stronger, I will tell more, and the Christmas trees are still up!
