Jasmine's New OPHELIA painting, New Loup-Garou Snow White, ACEOs, more.... [Feb. 27th, 2011|06:00 pm]

Hi everyone!

Had a great time at the Art Stroll last night - thank you to all of you who came out to see me! And for those who didn't, now you get to see the two new original paintings that debuted there - "Portrait of Ophelia" and "Loup-Garou: Blanche Neige". Ophelia sold at the show (but I have prints & posters) but the original Loup-Garou is now up for sale online! Also I have several new ACEO cards up for auction too.

First is "Portrait of Ophelia" - she just might be my favourite painting so far. One of my favourite Shakespearian characters, I think a lot of people are drawn to Ophelia! This is my third Ophelia I have painted, and I'm sure I will paint her again. This time it is more of a portrait piece, showing Ophelia still very much alive, eyes sparkling with despair and a hint of madness. You can see the waterlilies in the background and in her hair you can see many of the flowers mentioned in the play. One of my personal favourites. The original painting was a 16"x20" acrylic on panel, and yes - this original painting SOLD last night, but luckily I managed to scan her in before the show so I have prints & posters! All sizes from 11x14 ($13.90) all the way up to 52"x65" and you can even add on custom framing, matting, etc. or just have her as a poster! You can see her below:



"Portrait of Ophelia"

Next up, the other new original painting - a big beautiful new piece in a GLORIOUS ornate frame - the original is still available for sale as of this afternoon - "Loup-Garou: Blanche Neige" - another installment in my very popular "Loup-Garou" series (French for "werewolf") - all featuring wolves and beautiful girls in French-inspired portrait settings. "Blanche Neige" means of course "Snow White" - featuring the fairytale princess herself, running with the wolves! You can see a cozy cottage in the background which is inspired by Marie Antoinette's own idealized "Hameau" village in the gardens of Versailles. Framed in a truly outstandingly ornate picture frame, it is a huge showpiece of a painting - a whopping 51" high and 36" wide at its largest dimensions, and about 4" deep. This piece got a lot of attention at the show last night, it really is an eyecatching piece! This original painting is up for sale in my eBay store where she will remain until sold or else she'll be coming with me to the upcoming art shows this spring (so if you want her and aren't able to come to Florida for the shows, definitely grab her now!). You can see her below:



"Loup-Garou: Blanche Neige" 51"x36" ORIGINAL PAINTING

And yes - prints & posters of Loup-Garou: Blanche Neige are already up for sale! So, if the original painting isn't in your budget, be sure to grab one of these!! From only $13.90 - these go up to huge full sized 52"x60" prints & posters - very nice! Click here for the Loup-Garou: Blanche Neige prints & posters:
