|Movies, "Flowers in My Hair", Zodiac ACEOs, Heavenly Nightshade Prints....

Matt & I watched a TERRIBLE movie last night. It was simply awful. Awful beyond description, with no redeeming values whatsoever!|
It was called "Zombie Nation". I thought it was one of the worst movies every made (and I really enjoy bad movies, usually!) - and apparently a lot of people agree with me - according to its IMDB rating, it is the #2 worst movie of all, almost topping their "Bottom 100 List"! Anybody else seen it?
I also watched Repo Man (for probably the 10th time), but that of course is an excellent movie. I love "Repo Man" - I watched it a lot when I was a kid, so I'm also very nostalgic about it. I like a lot of the music in it, too.
We also snuck out and saw "Sweeney Todd" a few days back, that was also a very excellent movie. I'm not a fan of most musicals really, but I really like Sweeney Todd, and of course Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Burton, & Alan Rickman are all favourites of mine too, and they did a great job. It was funny seeing them all singing though for some reason, hehe.
Other than watching movies, I've pretty much been working my fingers to the bone =/
Now the art stuff - I have a brand new ORIGINAL painting on wood, Heavenly Nightshade SALE prints & #01 Canvas, and finally - four years in the making - I have ALL of my Zodiac ACEOs up for auction! They turned out beautifully, and all 12 are up on eBay right now!
First off - a quick note - thank you for your overwhelming response about my cameo necklaces! I apologize to everybody who missed out, all 20 sold out yesterday a half hour after I listed them, and I listed more today but they sold out instant. NO WORRIES though - since I'm having fun making them, and since there is obviously a demand for them, I will continue making more of them regularly, so you will see many more from me soon, I promise. Don't worry!
Now - the new painting is called "Flowers in My Hair" - a painting on wood! It features a beautiful big eyed dark haired fairy creature with all colours of flowers in her hair. It is READY TO HANG and does not require framing. The sides of the oval beveled wood panel are painted a glossy black - it is quite stunning! It is an environmentally-conscious selected wood, no worries! I have finished the piece with a glossy varnish and it looks amazing! No framing is needed - I will include a sawtooth hanger and screws for easy hanging! It is about 8.5" tall by 6.5" wide - a tall rectangular wooden panel, original acrylic painting on wood (about 1" thick basswood). She is up for a 7-day auction on eBay starting at just a penny with NO reserve - the auction will be ending on the afternoon/evening of Sunday, January 13th at 5:12PM Central Time, and you can see her below, click on the sneak preview image to see the whole painting:
