Thank you Natasha! I spend a lot of time picking out my frames, and set them aside for paintings that would suit them well. I like finding actual antique frames as well as wanna-be antique frames.
I've seen the Canfield's diet chocolate in my local Winn Dixie. Check around your city and see if there's a Winn Dixie there. Publix usually has an even bigger supply of stuff, and you can request either store to supply it, and once they know someone will buy it, they'll add it to their stock. I love it, too. It's great!
Our Publix had it once, only once. I should ask them about that...
Oooh! There's a Winn Dixie not far from here, I should check it out!
I know there are Albertsons down in your neck of the woods and they will carry products by request, as in one person's request (at least ours do here in WA state)
I think there's one up in Orlando - I might have to check that out!
I know there's one on Red Bug Lake Road in the Orlando area 8) i love the street name!
Oh!! I have a friend up by Casselberry - I think I've been to that one before, I'll have to take a look when I'm in that neck of the woods!!
The paintings that you have up are gorgeous honey. I love all the details in them.
I'm going to keep my eyes out for your soda. I can always get you some and it won't cost you anything.

I love the paintings, as usual *lol*!
For a long time I´ve been looking forward to see all the new tattoos.
I hope that I don´t have to wait so much longer :)
Now I have practised my English a bit. I hope it was ok! :)
I'm still sorting through the tattoo pics - I need to label them all with the name of the person and the information about the tattoo artist & tattoo parlour when I have it. Ought to be a huge update!
Ooh, owls! I love owls!
Diet chocolate cherry soda sounds good to me -- but then the only sodas I like very much are usually diet off-brands. And ginger beer!
I like all the weird sodas. One of my favouries is Doc Brown's Diet Celery Soda - it is great!
Prettyfuls!!! I love the barn owl and her princess outfit!!
And Blueberries and CReam has just the right contrast!! ^^
Thank you Dawn!
I just saw a show on Animal Planet where a guy had a pet barn owl - he'd ride in his bicycle basket and he'd take him to the pub, etc. I was so jealous!
great paintings, the owl is calling out my name, but got to wait.
good luck finding your soda. I live in texas ofcourse, and I don't know if you have a sun harvest where you live, but I've seen it there.
Usually if you to the manger, they'll restock it again. Atleast here they do. Doesn't hurt to ask.
Thank you Sandra =)
I don't think we have Sun Harvest here.
I'm so mad - I ordered it online and they only sent two cases (instead of the four I paid for) and there were two obscene t-shirts in the box instead. I keep calling customer service and it's a recording - GRRR!
What a bummer about your order? Why would you want 2 obscene t-shirts for?
Don't you hate it when you want to speak to a person and you keep getting a recording. I know what you mean about being mad, I would be too.
Was it expensive to order your soda? When you say a case, do you 12 or 14 cans?
I was thinking last night, wouldn't it be safer and cheaper for you if someone would go to the store and buy you soda and then pack them in the flat rate box. Not sure how many cans or bottles would fit. I suggest the 20 oz bottles since I mailed a can of Big Red soda to a friend of mine and it did explode. But the 20 oz bottles will make it. I have mailed those out before.
Just a suggestion. Could give it a try?
I know what it's like to want something, and the stores not carry it. When I lived in the Carolinas for awhile, I had family members ship me Goya products and corn tortillas, since they weren't sold in the area I was in.
Good luck trying to talk to a person.
Keep my fingers crossed for you.
Have a great Easter.
Those are both so gorgeous! I love the barn owl- he looks so soft! And Matt did a really awesome job with the framing. They look great! :)
Thank you Jasmine! I want to hug him! (The owl, that is. Oh, and Matt too, hehe!).
Just beautiful dear heart!
I always admired how well you can paint animals.
Toobad I can't afford your comminsions cos i'd have loved it if you painted my Vicki. Who knows, one day! haha
How can you not love this face?
I like the second painting the most.
"Canfield's Diet Chocolate Cherry Soda" sure sounds gross to me, haha, but hopefully you can find it somewhere else.
Matt thinks it's the grossest soda ever. At least I don't have to worry about him stealing it, lol.
Awwww - Vicki is a cutie! I will keep her pic on my computer. If I ever work her into a painting, I will send you a free print =)
1. It's not local, but the shipping may be better for your soda: http://www.low-carb.com/cadichchsopa.html
2. Question for you if you don't mind. I was looking for a UV protectant clear liquid varnish (to be applied with a brush )for something and all I could find was spray, which I really don't want. The girls at Joanne's looked at me like I was nuts and actually asked if such a thing existed.
I *thought* you used such a thing on your hand embellished prints... if I'm correct, would you mind terribly telling me where you get it??? I'm not an artist at all, so I'm stuck with where to look.
Sorry to bother you much (I know you get busy). Just let me know whenever you get a chance ;)
I ended up ordering at Amazon, but this does look like a better deal - thank you!
Oh!!! Yes I do indeed - I use the Genesis Heat Set Giclee system - I buy the actual Genesis Giclee gloss here:http://www.misterart.com/store/view/001/group_id/8416/GENESIS-Inkset-Clear-Giclee-Gloss-Coating.htm
it is HEAT SET which means that you need to cook it in the oven for 2-3 minutes at 265 degrees. So make sure whatever medium you are using won't catch fire or curl up at that temperature, lol. The canvases I use will hold out for that long but not even a minute longer. You HAVE to heat-set this stuff - otherwise it is perpetually a gel. But done right, it works great - also very water-resistant - I spilled a glass of wine on a finished print once, and it wiped right off with paper towels.
Hope that helps!
wow, that was quick!
hm. I didn't know that. I'm almost embarresed to admit what it's for... it's not dirty, just...a silly thing really. And it'd be damn impossible I think to put it in the oven. But thanks for the link! It at least gives me a basis to look up products so I can give an actual product name and/or order something :)
Aw shucks, well - at any rate MisterArt is a great site - I use them for just about anything art related! Also dickblick.com is another great site, they both have tons of stuff.
I've emailed you concerning a possible interview, but commenting, as you noted, is the fastest way to talk with you. I am a graduate student at Virginia Tech hoping to conduct phone interviews with women fantasy artists. I would love to talk to you about your artistic identity and about your being a self- employed woman. I hope you are interested and I would greatly appreciate your time in this project.
Eileen Weigand, Paints4fun
