You do amazing work! I just cant believe how amazing all of your paintings are and i would love to see them in person sometime. I am just curious, it seems you paint so quickly, how do you get so many paintings done in such a short time?
Thank you so very much!
Well, when I paint I do it in looong stretches, sometimes 18 hours at a time. I try to finish a painting in one setting, but sometimes with big paintings like this one (18x22) it takes me two sittings.
I use acrylic paints and between each layer I use a hairdryer to speed the drying times, which definitely helps in speeding things up!
Other than that I think it's just years of painting every day which makes for a lot of "practice". =)
Thank you Robyn! I hope I will!
I hope you have a wonderful time at the show and that painting is amazing. =)
Your very welcome, Jasmine! =)
That's just wonderful!!! I love the wolfie!!! He's so majestic and realistic!!! Of course your nymph/girl is cute as a button, as always!!!
Thank you Dawn! I want to cuddle him!
Absolutely beautiful. I love this one. You do such a great job painting animals, the background fits in so well too. I think this one will definately sell well.
Thank you very much! I really enjoy painting animals, I should do it more often.
sometimes you and matt amaze me. i wish i could stop by just to say hi when you are in atlanta, but i will be quite swamped myself at that time.
You will do great though as always, and you both deserve it being the great people you are (and all the hard work you put into everything you do)
Thank you Jillianne =)
Thank you very very much!
Mystery Science Theater Rocks!!!
It sure does! I wish I had them all on DVD. Man, that would be expensive though....
I have this hilarious episode on tape...I can't think of what it's called, but it has these aliens that look like humans, only they have big forheads...maybe you've seen it? anywho, it's a great one.
p.s. Your paintings are looking wonderful, as usual. : )
Is it the MST3K Movie? It sounds like the one that was actually released as a MST3K in theatres, that's a good one!
=) Thank you!
lol. Yes! It's the MOVIE. My mistake. lol. My ex has got the tape now... so I haven't seen it in awhile. : /
I have some photographs that maybe some source of inspiration? The are b&w and feature a snowglobe. haha. I'll post them in my journal if you'd like to check them out.
Those are pretty! I like the one with the peacock feathers too.
Can we have a HELL YES?!!! A Wolfish Friend is BEAUTIFUL!!!
>^___^< Thank you Carmel!!!!!
OH its magnificent!
I love wolves, so does my mother.
They are so spirted ^_^ Good job on the detail!
Thank you Heather! I saw a wolf in the wild, running across a field in Pennsylvania a couple months ago - it was so neat to see him out there.
I've never seen a wolf but I have seen foxes and bears before ^_^
I noticed I havent been recieving messages telling me bout ur new pieces of work so i went onto your website to see if you even had any and you did but I didnt get a message about it like I used to..
Did you confirm your email subscription when I re-did my mailing list?
Just email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with "JOIN" in the subject line. I will re-add you to the update list. Then within 24 hours you will receive a "confirm your subscription" email from me through Bravenet (the new company handling my mailing list updates). You will need to read that email and follow the instructions very carefully and then you will start receiving email updates again =)
I did get the message about the new mailing list and i did do that but i never got a message with directions lol
Ill send it now.^_^
Well, try it again. I do it myself, by hand, so unless you have a weird spam filter on your email box (it may try to block it since it may be considered a "bulk" email) it should work. Be sure you don't have a spam filter turned on to block bulk emails, and then try again.
I just tried it 3 times and the email wont go to the email you gave me to send it to ..did you maybe type it wrong? JasmineToad@aol.com is the one you wrote.. i copied and pasted it.
Not sure what you mean - are you emailing me? My only email is
when you say it "won't go there" what do you mean? Is it bouncing?
When i send it to you it emails me back saying:

LOL that movie is awesome!!
I swear, you do animals so well!! The wolf looks so REAL!
Thank you Becca! I really enjoy painting animals, I should do it more.....
It made me feel something string
it reminded a lot about Kira somehow
the detail on the fur and eye is really amazing, this one really caught me
luck in the event, i'm sure you don't need it
=) Thank you Priscilla. Your Kira was so beautiful.
you're portrayed the wolf so beautifully
i spent a while looking at the fur details in the ears. :) You have a special talent capturing the wild nature of animals
