Hi everybody! Art news for today! Lots of news!


#1 My new original painting "A Confusion of Wings" is finished! The original painting has already been sold, but I have the Limited Edition Canvases on eBay including the #01 tonight as well as other numbers HERE, and SALE prints of her are up on eBay HERE, and she will also be up at Zazzle shortly too.

#2 My new original painting "Veronica's Veil" is finished! Also with this one, the original painting has already been sold, but I have the Limited Edition Canvases on eBay including the #01 tonight as well as other numbers HERE, and SALE prints of her are up on eBay HERE, and she's also on Zazzle HERE!

Quick note about originals - many of you have been asking "How did the original sell so fast? How can I get one? Do I need magic powers or something?" -- The answer is that lately collectors have been buying paintings of mine before they are even finished. Basically if I have a painting that is *not* destined for display at a specific show or gallery, and if I post a work-in-progress photo of the painting while I am working on it here at my Facebook HERE or up on my Twitter HERE, or during a live video broadcast on my Livestream HERE, or on my Instagram (my user name there is Strangeling), I also post the approximate size & price of the painting. If a collector (you!) see the work-in-progress and already know you want it, you can basically call "first dibs!" on the painting by emailing me at JasmineToad@aol.com and put your name in. Typically we get a lot of requests, so they are handled in the order in which they are received. That is how a painting can sell before it is already finished =) So definitely keep an eye out for those work-in-progress pics up on Facebook, etc.

I could never tire of painting butterflies, definitely one of my favourite things to paint! My favourite in particular is the Blue Morpho, and they feature prominently in this piece.

"Veronica's Veil" - a portrait of Saint Veronica and her famous veil - the "first icon". An apocryphal story about the Saint, once this was a very popular theme for medieval & renaissance paintings (everybody from Memling to El Greco painted her at some point). I thought I'd paint her myself, as I always thought it was an interesting story. The visage of Christ on the veil is based off of one of my favourite portraits of him which hangs in the Nelson-Atkins museum by where I lived as a little girl (I always found it a very striking image). The light of the heavens pours down from a sunset, and St. Veronica has a very sweet and sad look about her. I like this one a lot. My husband Matt created a very nice arch cutout for the frame on the original piece. The original acrylic painting is SOLD, prints and Limited Edition canvases are available online (and large open edition canvases are also available at Downtown Disney's Pop Gallery at Walt Disney World).
