Got some beautiful things to show you today!

We're headed up to our midwest location to visit our families in Kansas City for the holidays.  All shipping in time for Christmas is complete (too late now!) but we'll be continuing to process orders & ship as per usual immediately after Christmas, so no delays on shipping after Christmas has passed.  Buy stuff as usual.

Secondly - I have been working on some new beautiful original "mini paintings" up for sale on eBay!  All are at fixed price, framed, buy-it-nows set at $495 - we can ship worldwide.  I have painted eight in all, they are selling fast but as of the time of this mailing there are still a few up there! Click HERE to see the mini paintings (and maybe snag one for yourself!).

Thirdly - my ACEO Cards are popping up tonight!  Around 7pm Eastern Time when youclick here they will start popping up, all running for 10 day auctions.  Only one of each ACEO card will ever be made.

In Patreon news - I have announced my next giveaway!  A set of three beautiful Disney magnets (featuring my Maleficent, Haunted Mansion Bride and the rare Tinker Bell and the Mermaids) from Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery - on January 4th a winner will be announced!  Giveaways are through my Patreon here -  As long as you are signed up (subscriptions start at literally $1) you will automatically be entered in all of them.

"Smile"
8x10" Original Acrylic Painting on Panel for sale HERE
Prints from $9.99 on sale at Strangeling.com this week HERE




No, your computer isn't having a glitch, and no - this is not a digital painting - it's my ownhandpainted acrylic painting called "Smile". This piece is dedicated to anybody who has felt they've had to censor their own emotions (or their artwork) to suit the tastes of others. Definitely a bit different for me, but a lot of fun! Part of what is a more creepy & surreal series, combining elements of my usual sorts of works with some more abstract elements - this is a play on digital (but not digital at all, I'm doing it all by hand of course - no computers for me) aesthetics combined with elegant and timeless characters, juxtaposed to create unsettling imagery.

This one in particular is a response to all the dozens of daily "why aren't you smiling?" "why isn't the girl in your painting smiling?" "paint somebody smiling!" "wish they were smiling" posts I get every single day. Title for this is "Smile" - the little squares I've done painted over her mouth are to look as if they are pixel mosaics, often used in visual censorship blurring that part of her face.  I have other pieces planned using a similar square painting technique, primarily focusing on themes of identity, censorship and anonymity.

As I mentioned, we now have the prints up for sale! They are 8x10" glossy, signed on the back by me, on sale this week for $9.99. We also have Limited Edition Canvas prints, each one hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed and numbered out of 25, also measuring 8x10", wrapped on boards & ready-to-hang - those are each $100. Both types of prints are at Strangeling.com here.

And yes, the original painting is up for auction HERE 8x10", acrylic painting on 2" deep cradled masonite panel, ready-to-hang, glossy black sides.  Bidding starts at a penny, to give everybody a chance.  The auction on eBay (seller ID: Strangeling ) runs until the evening of Monday, December 28th. We're happy to ship any of the artworks worldwide.

We also have them all up on eBay here also on sale

And on Etsy

I'm giving away a set of three magnets from Disneyland featuring my artwork on Patreon here - WORLDWIDE, international patrons are welcome!  One Patreon supporter will be selected randomly Monday night, January 4th at 8pm EST.   It is open to all levels of Patreon subscribers, worldwide, even just the $1 level.   All you need to do to enter is to be signed up at my Patreon by 8pm. Later next month we'll be doing original painting giveaways, figurine giveaways later this month, etc. too.

Want to BUY the magnets?  They are only available from Disney.  At Disney World you can find them at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs, in Bonjour Gifts and Memento Mori in the Magic Kingdom, and at the Tower of Terror's Hotel Gallery (in the gift shop) at Disney Hollywood Studios.  In California, at Disneyland's Downtown Disney you can find these at the WonderGround Gallery.

New ACEO Cards!
Click HERE to see them all


Auctions start at 7PM Eastern Time tonight!  If they haven't popped up yet, just check later this evening ;)

For each painting I do, I create a one of a kind "ACEO" Card.  Collectible tiny pieces of art (ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals), they are miniature canvas prints measuring 2.5x3.5" - the size of a baseball card or Pokemon card.  Since I only make one card for each painting, they are each numbered #1 of 1.  I hand embellish each one in acrylic paints, they are signed, dated and the authentification information is hand written by me on the back.  Lots of people keep these in binders to collect them, some folks do beautiful jobs framing them - they are a great way to start a collection or to add to a collection once you've run out of wallspace!

My new batch of ACEO cards are up for auction here for 10 days, with bidding starting at just one penny.  Enjoy!
