SPOTLIGHT ON Jasmine's Fairy Goddesses!



This update, scroll down to see actual photos of the first three Fairy Goddesses!

Info at the bottom of this post!



Tonight I have two framed original paintings to show you! They are small, miniature paintings - in response to those of you who have been asking for small-format ORIGINAL framed paintings. I plan on doing more in this size, if you guys like these!

Also tonight I have two new events to tell you about. This weekend (Saturday, April 30th) - there is the Grand Opening of a gallery in Denver, Colorado showcasing my work! Also I've been confirmed as a guest November 19th-20th at the Sarasota Florida Medieval Fair.
Also today - Spotlight on the Goddesses! With this new segment I'm showing off actual photographs of various Hamilton Collection statues - including upcoming issues - to see the actual statues themselves!

Two New Framed ORIGINAL Miniature Paintings

These are so cool! Miniature paintings (3.5"x2.75") - actual original paintings, framed at 8"x7" - both start bidding at just a penny!




"Little Dolphin Fish" is a lovely framed ORIGINAL miniature painting! Inspired by his sea monster friends who often appeared in antique maps, classical fountains, and architectural details - this wiggly little guy is goggle eyed and CUTE!

He is already framed - his frame measures 8" wide by 7" high. (the panel itself is 3.5"x2.75"). He can be hung on the wall by the sawtooth hanger on the back OR sat on a table/desk/mantlepiece with the easelback stand, either way, he is ready to display!
He's up on eBay starting at ONE PENNY for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Saturday, May 7th at 6:03 PM and you can see him below:


"Little Dolphin Fish" FRAMED ORIGINAL PAINTING is HERE





"A Grinning Skull" is the other lovely framed ORIGINAL miniature painting! A study of a "resurrected" skull with gleaming eyes. He might be kinda creepy, but he needs a good home!

He is already framed - his frame measures 8" wide by 7" high. (the panel itself is 3.5"x2.75"). He can be hung on the wall by the sawtooth hanger on the back OR sat on a table/desk/mantlepiece with the easelback stand, either way, he is ready to display!
He's up on eBay starting at ONE PENNY for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Saturday, May 7th at 6:00 PM and you can see him below:

For those of you who live in the Denver area and want to have a fun evening this Saturday - it's the Grand Opening of Creative Minds Gallery - right in the middle of the Santa Fe art district in Denver, Colorado!


PLEASE NOTE: I myself (Jasmine) am NOT going to be there. However, a great selection of my large licensed open edition canvas prints WILL be there! A great place to see & to purchase my large format fine art open edition canvases. If you are in the Denver area - definitely stop in!


Cocktails & Hors d'Oeuvres!

Gina & her partners at Creative Minds have collectively involved in the community for over 30 years, and it really should be a great gallery.

Location: Creative Minds Gallery 825 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, Colorado 80223

Time: 5:00pm - until close. More info is HERE.




And for those of you who live in Florida - this November 19th & 20th - I will be at the Sarasota Medieval Fair!

I will be there IN PERSON on November 19th & 20th in the VIP/Guest tent. Just that weekend only (the second weekend, that's it!).

November 19-20th - I am the guest for the weekend and I will have my own tent with a TON of art! Original paintings, canvases, prints, and other merchandise - I'm looking forward to it - the Sarasota Medieval Fair is always a ton of fun - right there at the Sarasota Fairgrounds.


More info at www.sarasotamedievalfair.com


Again - I will only be there the second weekend - November 19th-20th (the second weekend, not the first weekend!)

Sarasota County Fairgrounds 3000 Ringling Blvd Sarasota, FL 34237


I love Renaissance festivals and am very happy to be at this one! More details to follow!


*****************
Now it's time for..... Spotlight on the Goddesses!


Since typically the Hamilton Collection only shows the first issue in a collection (and often just the concept/ad art, rather than the actual photos!) of many of my figurines online or in ads, I thought it might be a good idea to "show off" what the actual statues & further issues in a series actually look like! I plan on doing this from time to time, both to inform and also just to provide additional eye candy.


Today I'd like to spotlight one of my very new series that have already gone into production - some of you may already have the first one or two in the series of your own at home, but here are the first three of my "Fairy Goddesses"! Again - these are available to the public already and these are actual photos of the finished pieces that the public receives (I took these out in my own back yard!).

The first of the Fairy Goddesses is "Venus":



The second of the Fairy Goddesses is "Hera" (with a lovely Peacock theme):



and the third of the Fairy Goddesses (just got her in the mail!) is "Athena":



Coming soon are Artemis, Demeter, and Aphrodite!

This Fairy Goddess statue collection is availaible immediately through the Hamilton Collection's website here:

Jasmine's Fairy Goddesses Collection

Basically the collection starts with Venus, and then each month you get a new Goddess statue in the mail - only $24.99 each (cancel at any time).

(As you can see, they still just have the drawing on the website, but the actual statues are those in the photos I've posted here!). It's one of my favourite collections so far!



***************** **Please note - I do not work for Hamilton Collection, nor do I stock the collectibles, ship them, nor do I have any inside info regarding orders placed, billing, shipping, timelines, policies, or ANYTHING like that. Basically I just do the original artwork that inspire the collectibles! SO - if you have questions regarding Hamilton policies, questions about your order, product info, shipping info, timelines, billing, availability, etc. - don't ask me, instead ask the customer service folks up at Bradford Exchange! You can call them at 1-877-268-6638. Or contact them through

If you have questions regarding non-US availability (Canada, UK, Australia - anywhere else in this great planet!) - please read:

http://www.strangeling.com/bradfordgroupinternational.html

Don't worry, I'm sure that as these go into production you'll be able to get them from the international outlets as well!

More products are on their way, so keep your eyes peeled!
