Hi everyone!

I have TWO new original paintings for you tonight - a big long new mermaid painting called "Cambrian Mermaid" and a voodoo themed Faces of Faery painting. Both are ready-to-hang and starting at just one penny! And in other news.....wait for it.... NEW NECKLACES - tons of new sterling silver pendants featuring my paintings are now up at Zazzle - over fifty to choose from (and I'll be adding more!). They make glorious gifts and come in little black felt bags, complete with chain, sterling silver, incredibly nice, I am very proud of them.

First off are the new original paintings......

To see all of my currently available original paintings - including the two new ones CLICK HERE!

First off is "Cambrian Mermaid" - a long narrow original painting - 24" wide by 8" high - 2" thick gallery wood cradling - ready to hang - feeding the inner paleontological nerd within me me, I had a lot of fun with this one. The Cambrian period (about 500 million years ago, give or take a few days) was one of the most exciting times in pre-history, and one of my favourites. I wrote a paper once about the Burgess Shale discovery (a rock formation that captured a lot of Cambrian-era invertebrate fossils) and have been fascinated with the bizarre creatures of the Cambrian period ever since. The animals found from them are very alien-looking - in many ways very unlike anything before or since. Opabinia has got to be one of the weirdest things that ever lived - five eyes and a clawed trunk nose? Along with Opabinia I've also painted various trilobites and other invertebrates from the time period. And once again, throwing geological science out the window for once (hey, it's FANTASY right?) I've included a rather curious little mermaid in there. And taken a bit of artistic liberty with the colours. Thank you for indulging my fancies! Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! She is on eBay starting at ONE PENNY for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Monday, December 20th at 5:48 Central Time. You can see her below:

And yes - prints, posters, and framed prints of "Cambrian Mermaid" are already up for sale at Zazzle - all sizes up to 78" in size! You can see the prints & posters of her here:

The next one- "Faces of Faery 134" - from my painting series called "Faces of Faery". Each is an ORIGINAL PAINTING (not a print of any kind). Faces of Faery all feature beautiful faery-inspired creatures, these are no exception. The great thing about my "Faces of Faery" series of paintings is that they are all the same size and are intended to hang beautifully in a group as well as on their own - for example they make fabulous groupings of several paintings together Like all Faces of Faery she is 6"x6" on a 2" deep cradled masonite panel that is READY TO HANG and needs no frame. She is a sultry eyed girl with a yet-un-poked voodoo doll! "Faces of Faery 134" is up on eBay starting at ONE PENNY for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Sunday, December 19th at 6:00 PM Central Time. You can see her below:
