Happy October, everybody!

First the big news - our annual HALLOWEEN SALE is up & running!  See all the Halloween/Spooky/Autumn/Day of the Dead themed prints on sale (over 100+ to choose from) all right here!  Sale runs today (Thursday), Friday & Saturday, worldwide.

We've been having a wonderful time at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival and are excited to be there this weekend as well! (Details are HERE).  I will be there IN PERSON this weekend (October 3-4) and weather permitting, I'll be PAINTING at my easel out front!  Building 251, kinda by the Joust.  This weekend if you come to my shop wearing fairy wings, you can pick out a FREE 4x6 print!

I have a brand new painting - "Milagros: Corazon"  to show you, and in time for the season it is Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) themed, I painted her for the Alexi Era Gallery (as part of their "Amore Vincit Omnia" show opening this weekend).  The gallery has already sold the original, but we now have the prints & canvases for sale up here

I have been painting more for my upcoming "Birds and Beasties" show (at Eight and Sand Gallery in Seattle, WA - I'll be there in person for the opening on October 10) - you can keep up with the works-in-progress on the Event Page here (including the new "Amber Dragonling")

"Milagros:  Corazon"
8x10 Original Acrylic Painting $2400 SOLD at Alexi Era Galley

Prints & Limited Edition Canvases from $9.99 are HERE


"Milagros:  Corazon: - The second installment in my series of pieces featuring Milagros - inspired by the wonderful milagros charms on a lot of the folk art I saw in Mexico earlier this year. "Corazon" is the Spanish word for "Heart" which features prominently in this painting. Painted for a Dia de los Muertos themed art show, this lovely girl has several beautiful charms adorning the heart, and she has some traditional Calavera face paint on. Milagros charms are typically tied with a person's name, with the shape of the charm indicative of the healing/prayer wanted (ie a leg, if somebody is praying for their leg to be healed, etc.). I also saw them used as decorations sewn to clothing, glued to crosses, left at shrines, worn as jewelry, etc.

This original painting will be hanging at Alexi Era gallery (as part of their "Amore Vincit Omnia" show) tomorrow night!  The gallery has let me know that they have already sold the original, but we have prints, etc. already available.  The "Amore Vincit Omina" show will have it's opening reception Oct 3rd, 2015 6-9PM, and the show will run at the Alexi Era Gallery from Oct 3rd – Nov 15th .

We have open edition glossy paper prints signed by me on the back for only $9.99 this week, and hand embellished Limited Edition canvases for only $100 (edition of 25) - both are here:
