Oooo. I'm here before anyone else! I could take them both if I wanted!
::rubs hands evily::
Your paintings just get better and better, that is why it is so hard to decide if I had the money I would buy prints of them all but I don't Casting the Runes is awesome the color the eyes, so please don't be mad at me but I am changing snowspell to this print. Plus I like playing Runes they are cool. And I swear this is final..Plus I will send you a note with the package. Goodnight Sharon it is getting late here.
Thank you Sharon!! I've switched it on your order for you =)
Ooooh FUN!! A Jasmine community. I'm sooo in!!! Casting the Runes is awesome!!! I love the glowy arcane circle thingies. The way her eyes match her dress and it all seems to glow is great too!!! Great job as usual sweetie!!!
Wow a community devoted to you. That is just so flattering. Your so lucky. I think it is awesome how you have such a strong following. Trust me I am one of those people. I love seeing all your new paintings come to life. =)
Hehe, thank you Jessica!! >^____^
Your welcome, Jasmine! =)
she's beautieous hun!!! ^-^
I know i don't know you and I'm being nosy...but i think your art is real cute and noticing that your "casting the runes" piece is selling for quite a bit on ebay...do ou do this for a living or just a side thing?...you must do pretty good for yourself...
anyways bye for now...i must go to work.
Oh my yes, definitely a full time job - I even have my husband working for me (he handles shipping, packing, wholesale, etc.). You can see more all about it up at my website - http://www.strangeling.com
I started when I was about 18, and it took about 4 years before it was really a "full time" job, but now my website, licensed merchandise, books (and eBay!) turned my art into a real career =)
That sounds awesomely cool..I needa check out more of your stuff...eventually. I'm terribly lazy...as you can see...took me ages to reply.
Since you're pretty talented..were you always able to draw and simply became better and more refined at it over the years..or was it something you had to really try at?... I've always had a passion for drawing...but I suck at it...yet it's like the only creative thing that i find myself interested in wanting to do...raargh!
I've always been pretty good at drawing & painting - I didn't really start taking it "seriously" until I was about 14, and didn't start doing it professionally until I was 18. I've gotten a lot better over the years since then - I think just doing it everday is such good practice, it's really helped me refine my skills.
You're very welcome. ^^
By the way, I took some pics of your work that's now hanging on the wall of my bedroom, hehe. I am adjusting them at the moment. Making them a bit smaller and brighter for you. I hope you like them. I will email them later. Do you mind if they are about this size?? >> about 800x500 pix, 72 dpi. Because I figured you might like to resize them yourself for your website (because of the quality and loading time etc.)
Anyway, um bye bye, hehe ;)
Ooooh! Wonderful! Certainly - I can always re-size as needed! >^__^
Ok, I'm working on it, haha yw ^^
hi i love the runes painting and can i just say that it was a great idea using the bright glowy circles !!!!!!!! also pretty hair lol
Thank you so much! It was a lot of fun making them glow!!
I was watching you paint for a bit and LOVE this one with the light hair. Beautiful!!
I love the new larger painting! Looks like there's a bit of Stonehenge behind her, I love that place!
Lol why are you surprised that there's a community for your art?! You deserve one with all your hard work :)
Have a great weekend!
Thank you very much Sorrel! This one was a pleasure to paint! (Maybe it was a little tricksy trying to make it look "glowing", hehe - but hey - I like a challenge!).
I just bought a "Bringer of Lightening", I can't wait to see it!! It'll go up next to the Starry Night Fairy (did I get the title right?).
Woohoo! Thank you muchly! Oh yes, Starry Night Fairy would make a lovely complement to her!
your own fan community! wow, that so flattering :) how cool!
Hehe, I think I might join it, just to peek in, lol!
LOL! Well of course. you must! haha if it was me...i would HAVE to peek in every day anyhow, so might as well join ;) besides, i think seeing post about how much people were enjoying my art would be a huge daily motivator! how fun!
I just viewed your runes painting, and it is enchanting! The glowing circles are a unique touch, and you captured the runic symbols wonderfully. I also love the stonehenge in the background. Here's a great site for "armchair traveling", that I think you'd enjoy (I do!): http://www.mythicalireland.com/
Lots of photo references to ancient Irish sites.
Have a super day!
Hi Angelique! What an amazing website - I am bookmarking it right now!!!
Oh I love "Casting Runes!" The glowing rings are fabulous.
Thank you Beth!
Your new piece is coming along wonderfully, by the way!
Oh yes i very much agree.

Oh what am i talking about!! ALL your work is....great, marvouless,
there is nothing else i can say!
You have mail :)
>^___^< Thank you so much!!
I will check my mail asap! I've been working on my website like a zombie for the past 48 hours or so, hehe.
What the link to the icons you made for other to use here?
I thought I saved the link but I cant find it anywhere.
I love the hair on this one! That's how I wished my hair looked, lol!!
Thank you Heather! Me too, hehe - especially if it would float around like that, lol!

An idea....a request
I was enjoying your work, WONDERFUL! And checking out your merchandise and i wondered if you ever thought about offering some of your work in cross stitch patterns. I would LOVE to be able to sew some of them and display them in my home. Since Fantasy art and the fantasical world are my favorite things and cross stitching is a big hobby of mine, I can't think of anything that would be more beautiful.
Thanks for allowing me to offer a suggestion.
Hi Melissa! Thank you very much for the suggestion!
I don't have any yet, but when/if I do I will post right away here and on my website!
