Enough art for you? ;)

I have been so busy lately! On Saturday Matt & I went to the Bay Area Renaissance Festival and had a blast! Our friend Bob (the genius behind A Midsummer Knight's Dream - go buy some of his puppets here: www.fantasypuppet.com/ ) hooked us up with tickets and even traded us a beautiful wolf puppet for one of my statues.

We had lots of good food, lots and lots of good drinks (well, I did at least - Matt had to drive, hehe). Saw lots of neat things and met a lot of neat people. I had worn one of my Mountain shirts with my Allura painting on it (hey - I get free samples - that means free clothes!) and lots of people recognized me because of it, which was really neat!

Oh yes! Attention Local People: I will be having a book & print "signing" festivity in Orlando, Florida. Mark your calendars now - it will be on JUNE 17th of this year. It will be at Avalon - that neat bookstore/metaphysical shop downtown - their website is here: http://www.avalonbeyond.com - I will let you know when I hear more details - I met the ladies from there when I was at the tradeshow last month - they are great people and it will be a fun event! It will be in the newspapers, etc. so be on the lookout! And of course, I'll post more as the date nears.

And oh yes - I think that the episode of Smallville that will feature my artwork will be on April 6th, so mark your calendars there too ;)

I need to go catch up on some work now (oh, I love saying that at 11pm, really) - I will talk to you all soon! Enjoy the new art!

wow.. I really like the graffiti fairy one. You painted that graffit, too? Thats really cool because it's unlike anything i've ever seen you do plus I love graffiti art so its like two of my favorite things (jasmine fairies and graffiti) mixed into one fabulous world :)
P.S. I meant to tell you also a while back: The wings on the fairy for "A walk in the cemetary" are really nice, too. Very eerie looking....
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much! Yes indeed - that's all acrylic paints on canvas - it was fun doing the graffiti, hehe. If I'd thought ahead I would have put some secret messages or something in there, lol.

"Fairy Odalisque" is gorgeous!! I absolutely love everything about her. I'm still jumping for joy that your going to be at Avalon!! They all seem really nice there. I have tons of questions for you about the Avalon thing. Will you be signing stuff that people bring in, your own merchandise, or stuff that they sell there only? And would I be able to get a picture with you?
Thanks!! =)

hahaha, it's nuts isn't it? you paint and paint and you always sell your originals. I hardly ever did that yet, I have so much trouble with selling them. Sometimes I think you are kinda brave for doing it all the time lol. Especially with the ones that turn out the best :D

my friend erika told me that she has been trying to get a store in omaha to carry your merchandise and so they thought they would give it a test run i guess. well, she went to go see what they had available only to find out that it had sold out before it even hit the shelves. all the employess bought it out.

Seems you fandom is spreading faster each day!

Have fun at the Retreat! Elmore has been one of my favorite artists since I was a kid; when I started reading DragonLance when I was in 5th grade. :D

I had a wonderful time, Larry is one of the best people I have ever met. We got to go to his studio and go through all of his stuff, lol - there were stacks of Dragonlance paintings EVERYWHERE!!!

Wow!

I love the painting of "Fairy in a Red Dress". She is absolutely inspirational and most beautiful. The colors were fantastic. I want to be an artist but i can't get my colors to have that effect or magnitude. If you can give me any tips, they would be most apreciated, if you could send them to kinkyfrog_713@yahoo.com. I would just love it as much as I do your artwork, sincerely Carrie.
