Goodness!!!

Dear Jasmine:

Two out of three sold immediately, not ten minutes after you posted them to Ebay. Heck, I have not even received your 'mass' email yet.

Whoohoo! ::poke:: why didnt you tell me about the festival! I love those things! I am so upset I cannae go to the St. James Art Festival in Louisville, KY since moving back home and have been looking for some sort of 'culture' like that. Cannae wait for the RenFests to start up again.

Congrats again on the fabulous instant wins!

Re: Goodness!!!

The closest I know about isnt really close by.. its in Largo just south of Clearwater, BAY AREA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL OF LARGO, which I think last year was its last year in its previous location. (was close when I lived in Tampa tho.) I hear it will be moving somewhere else in or near the city, which is sad because the site was 7-10 years established and perfect for it. Used to run from Mid-March until around Easter. So for about 6 weekends, rain or shine.

There is another that is in Sarasota right before this one starts but is only for a weekend. I'll check with some local SCA members and see if they know of more located here in Central Fla tho too.

PS http://www.renaissancefestival.com/stateresults.asp?stateid=florida will list those festivals in Florida. Sad, because it shows they are all over and we shall have to wait until next year.

all your beautiful paintings

Jasmine, you did a wonderful job on the LOST IN THE MISTS!!! I will treasure her just like i do all my others. You know, I don't have a little girl of my own...i have two boys...one 13 and the other 15....and i need a fantasy to take me away from them sometimes...like to a place where i can dream i would look like the girls you paint. hehe like that can be done. A Flutter of Wings is so beautifully done it is breathtaking...when I clicked on its page, it was taken....you have outdone yourself and the price you got is a steal because in my opinion, its worth more. It looks like your third fairy you completed today will be a success also. I know you enjoy painting and the thrill you have when customers enjoy them too. I will be watching for more and more and more even though i think i may not have the $$$. You take care, until the next time i win an auction. Much Love to you. Laura

Congrats on the BIN sells. I can see why they sold so fast. I may have to get the print of the wings picture. They all had some rich colors. I like the reds and then the colors in the first. I forgot the titles I am sorry so it is hard to get my comments across.

OH MY GOD! Lost in the Mists is the BEST painting EVER Jasmine! She is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO adorable! I'm going to have to get that and the Cloud Faery print from you to hang in my bedroom. I love the soft calming colors you used for those. Of course, the Absinthe one kicks SERIOUS butt, as well as A Flutter of Wings. Yay for redhead faeries =D

Personally, I think you should have gotten WAY more for both of those chica ;) (IMHO at least) Then again I think some art is simply priceless, lol.

All three are great! I really like "A Flutter of Wings", her face seems different from those you've done before. Congrats of the BIN! I went to the auctions last night when I got your mass-mailing and they were gone! Good for you! :D

Silver and Cold

There's an a.f.i. song where he says, "Light, like the FLUTTER OF WINGS, feel your hollow voice rushing into me as you're longing to sing. So I will paint you in silver. I will wrap you in cold." Just useless trivia, nonetheless I thought it was cool you named your painting "A Flutter of Wings." :)

The eyes in Flutter of Wings are really cool. I had to look at them several times to see all the colours.
