Feeling better, and I have *TWO* New Paintings! [Aug. 8th, 2006|09:08 pm]

Hi everyone!

I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER today! Thank goodness. I was getting really tired of feeling sick there for awhile....

Got a LOT of work done yesterday night and today. Catching up from being sick, and excited to paint some more since I'm feeling healthy.

I have TWO wonderful new paintings for you, and also some 1st edition Canvas Prints of some of my older paintings!

The first new painting is called "Golden Tree Fairy" and she is simply gorgeous! She is one of my special "Fairy Wood" paintings - an original acrylic painting on a slice of real wood - complete with bark! Click below to see her:

"Golden Tree Fairy" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Next up is a very, very special painting. She is very special because she is already FRAMED. This one specifically is actually intended to be shown at Dragon*Con in Atlanta in September, but I thought that first I would offer her to you guys in my eBay store, just to be fair. If she is not sold in the next month, she will be taken to be sold at Dragon*Con. Click below to see her:

"Me and My Green Dragon" FRAMED ORIGINAL PAINTING



To see any other available originals, just visit my Original Paintings section of my store here:

Next up are the new #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas Prints for some of my older paintings - these turned out beautifully - just click the links below:

"The Alchemist's Plague" #01 Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT

"The Alchemist's Revenge" #01 Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT

"Butterfly Princess" #01 Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT


And to see this week's SALE Prints just go here:

I'm getting my revised list of the artworks I'm bringing to Dragon*Con together (looong story) and will be posting new paintings in the next few weeks. Most I will be taking to Dragon*Con but I may let them rest in my eBay store first for a few days in case somebody wants to snatch them. All will be framed, stretched, or otherwise ready-to-hang, and they'll be coming along with Matt & I in our van to Dragon*Con to show off there - should be fun! We have a bunch of beautiful frames picked out, these paintings are going to be very special pieces.

Last night I watched the 1983 "Hercules" movie starring Lou Ferrigno! It was fabulous. Matt is a big Lou Ferrigno fan, and loved this movie when he was a kid, so it was a lot of fun to watch it with him. If you like 1970s/80s loooow budget fantasy movies (like all those old Sinbad movies, or other Harryhausen movies, things kind of ripping off Clash of the Titans, etc.), you might enjoy it. The special effects are pretty funny. Delphine - you'd probably like it, lol.

Okay - I'd better go work on Dragon*Con stuff now! Enjoy the new art!

Thank you Becca! We lucked out - the day we went to buy a bunch of frames at Michaels, they were having a 50% off Open Wood Frame sale - we saved like $400!

lollllllll I was at that strange videoclub last week named "Succubus" and with a name like that, you can guess what kind of weird movies they have, mostly horror movies from all countries but also a huge whole wall of ollld fantasy movies, and actually Kev showed me the videotape of this very Hercules and I LOLed !! We love Lou too, specially after seeing Pumping Iron a bunch of time ( Kev and I share the secret dream to both become huge oiled powerful barbarians just like them ! lol ) Next time I go there I'll totally have to rent it XD !!

Totally off topic, I'm now totally 200% positive that I'll be able to do that mysterious trip/class you know where with you know who, I'd go there alone actually and my dad will take care of bringing Rydia to school each days during that one week =D ! I also already got the funds for it ! >:D !
The DAY they start the inscription we need to sign up asap, looks like a lot of people wanna go too XD ... anyway, we'll keep an eye on that ! ^.-

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX And gorgeous paintings as always but you already know that lol ! ;D

Happy to hear you're feeling better. I especially love the way the fairy's butterfly wing is coming out of the wood "frame," and the green dragon is fabulous!

*FANGIRL ALERT*
I am so in love with "Me and My Green Dragon" ! ! ! ! ! ! !
(well, as in love as one can be with an adorable little painting)

In all seriousness, I wish you lots of good luck at Dragon*Con. I bet your new paintings will sell like hotcakes.

Re: love your work!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by - I'm pleased to meet you and happy that you like my paintings!

I saw that you mentioned that you "copied" 15 of my pictures for icons? I just wanted to make sure that you read and understand my terms of use regarding my artwork - that can be found here:

http://www.strangeling.com/usageterms.html

just wanted to make sure you got that - please let me know if you have any questions.

In answer to your Zodiac question - I am still working on my Zodiac series! I'm going in astrological order, so far I have completed from Aries to Sagittarius. Next up would be Capricorn, then Aquarius, and then Pisces. Don't worry, I am painting all of them and I won't leave out Pisces, hehe!

Thank you again!
