New Originals - Circe, Unicorn's Ghost, MINIs, more! [Sep. 6th, 2012|11:26 am]

Hi everybody! Art news for today!

We are BACK home from Dragon*Con! We had our best show yet, thank you to all of you who came out to see us - we had a wonderful time!

Most of the original paintings (and all of the canvases) at the show have sold, or sold on our way back home, hehe. However I am now posting the images online for the rest of the world to see - all very exciting - AND we have the prints & posters starting to pop up for sale now too, huzzah!

Also - I have one of the original miniature "studies" I did as a preparatory painting for another larger piece and I'm offering it up for sale on eBay - a miniature original painting of a Unicorn Skull (as later featured in my new Unicorn's Ghost) - Matt has put the mini painting into a frame and it's turned out rather nice - the auction for this original painting starts at just one penny, you can see it HERE.

Firstly - one of the new original paintings that debuted at Dragon*Con (we actually sold it upon our return within just a few minutes, I'm sorry, but you can still see the photos!) - "Circe and the Swine" was up for auction on eBay HERE - not to worry though, prints are already up for sale too - details below in this newsletter!

Secondly - another one of the new original paintings that debuted at Dragon*Con (and again - we actually sold it upon our return within just a few minutes, I'm sorry again, but you can still see the photos of this amazing piece in it's cool frame!) - "Unicorn's Ghost" was up for auction on eBay HERE - not to worry though, prints are already up for sale too for this one - details below!

I will be sending out more mailing list updates this week to show off some of the other great paintings that debuted at the show (I'm sorry they're pretty much all sold, but I will definitely have prints) as well as some brand new pieces I'll be working on this month - did somebody say HALLOWEEN is coming? ;) So stay tuned!

Miniature Unicorn Skull and Unicorn's Ghost!





What's a painting study? Well basically before I do a full sized painting I often do "study" paintings, small format paintings of eyes or other detailed of a painting to try out new colour combinations, portraiture, etc. (for realistic works). This "Miniature Unicorn Skull" for example was a small painting I did prior to painting my popular "Unicorn's Ghost" painting for Dragon*Con. I wanted to figure out the logistics of what a unicorn's skull would actually look like, so I painted it on a small scale here first. My husband Matt suggested that fans and collectors might want these tiny study paintings, so he has cut this one down & framed it in an AMAZING ornate frame that really makes it "pop"! Even though the painting itself is only 2.75"x3.5" in size, with this deep gorgeous frame it is almost 9" wide by 10" high and a DEEP 2" thick. This is the actual original painting itself, not a print or drawing but an actual original painting - ready to hang on your wall. Bidding on this painting starts at just one penny, it is up for a 10 day auction on eBay ending the evening of Saturday, September 15th at 6:20pm Central Time and you can see it below
