New Absinthe Mermaid ORIGINAL painting, Marie Antoinette STATUES, more... [Jun. 3rd, 2010|05:47 pm]

Hi everyone!

I have a big beautiful new original painting for you tonight - "Absinthe Mermaid" BIG at 24"x18" - ready to hang - starting at just ONE PENNY on eBay (and prints are up already too!)! Next, my brother-in-law Chris has some new penny statue auctions up (including statues of my Oz Tin Girl & Dorothy!). And then finally - LONG awaited - finally - my "Marie Masquerade" debuts as the first statue in my new "Fit for a Queen" figurine collection. Yes - my "Marie Antoinette" is the first in the series of what will be my statue versions of my favourite Queens - Cleopatra, Elizabeth I, Eleanor of Aquitane and more! They are available NOW for pre-order! This is an exclusive telephone-order-only pre-order for just my fans. Definitely reserve yours now so they don't sell out (Limited Edition).

Now, let me introduce "Absinthe Mermaid" Ready to hang - 2" deep cradled masonite - it is is an ORIGINAL acrylic painting measuring 24"x18", ready to hang. Oh, I love this painting! The green colours of absinthe.... this languorous mermaid seems to embody the indulgent spirit of absinthe. Here eyes flash green, her luxuriant blonde hair streams over the roots and rocks (with sinister skull-like visages). You will see she holds a traditional absinthe spoon in one hand, and a green bottle floads away from her grasp on the absinthe-green waves. And yes, to give everybody a chance, she is starting at just ONE PENNY! It's up for a 10-day auction ending the evening/afternoon (a little EARLIER than usual) of Sunday, June 13th at 4:45 PM Central Time, and you can see her here:

You can add on custom mats, frames, glass, etc. however you want it. And you can choose the paper type - glossy, matte, canvas, poster, whatever. Small sizes are available as well as HUGE sizes - up to 64" in size. Just use the options in the upper right hand corner of this page to choose the size you'd like - leave it plain as a poster print or add framing options. No need to wait any more!!

New Limited Editions & Hamilton Collection statues at Magical_Figurines

New of note, he has some new stretched canvas prints, new Limited Edition statue auctions, and Hamilton Collection figurines including my "Fairies of Oz" series & more!

Next up - Marie Antoinette finally makes her statue debut! As "Marie Masquerade" is one of my favourite paintings I've done, and having just visited Marie Antoinette's home at Versailles last month, I am SO happy to have finally realized her as a statue! In fact, she's the first in my series called "Fit for a Queen" - slightly more "grown-up" than my typical Hamilton Collection figurines, this series will focus on my love of history, and the various women through the ages who have inspired me personally. This is a series very close to my heart, and I hope that you enjoy these!
