O_O!!!!!!

Have you ever seen Lady Jay's artwork?? Please tell me those aren't night-blooming jasmine flowers! If the eyes on this fairy turn out red, it'll be almost identical to her "Blind Night Fairy"!! Creepy.

Hello! Who is this - by the way? These anonymous comments always confuse me, especially if they're from somebody I know, lol!

I'm not sure who your "Lady Jay" is - I tried to search all over, but I couldn't find anything! Is she an anime character? I found a cosplay site that had a Lady Jay.

Nope - these are White Oleander. Her eyes are silver =) I have done a lot of red-eyed paintings though lately (which in turn have inspired numerous others, so I wouldn't be surprised)! This is the 10th in my series of "Poison Fairies" - all featuring Fairy girls with poisonous plants. If you are new to my journal/website, you might not have seen all the others - here are the first nine:

Thank you Rubidia!!
Some of them are old, before I started taking very high-res scans of my artwork (to make prints from) so I only have small files for some of them, unfortunately! I used to only pick a few paintings here and there to make prints from, but now I do it with all of my paintings!

I am adding many new prints very soon to my website though =)

Me? Just an admirer of your art! :) Sorry, hope I didn't sound offensive. Lady Jay was the handle of an artist who used to sell on eBay about 6 years ago but stopped because her arm was injured in an accident. Later that year her ebay ID was stolen so she stopped all together. Your latest piece reminded me very much of one of her drawings. (she doesn't paint... I think)

Umm.. I don't know who those another anonomous posters are, and don't want to be confused with them, so this will be my last message. Sorry for the confusion and eating up your space! Your art is gorgeous! :)

Thank you very much =) Hehe - it gets confusing with all the anonymous users!!!

Ah, that was probably before my time then - I didn't have eBay until about four years ago. I would have liked to have seen her work!!

That is a sad story =( I wonder if she still creates art? I hope she didn't let something like that deter her. As an artist myself I'm always paranoid that I will injure my eyes or my hands - I've actually started trying to teach myself to paint lefthanded, just in case. My friend erikasfriends has a wonderful website: http://www.erikasfriends.com featuring her own art and the work of other disabled artists. One woman there learned to draw using her mouth after she was paralyzed! It's very inspiring!

I remember somebody copied some of JasmineToad's other Poison Fairies a little while ago - was it her? There are so many artists now that use the "Becket" style,lol.
