* Website Updated! * New Prints! * "The Art of Faery" Orders Being Taken! *

Ahhhh - I am so relieved. Everything on my website is finished, and I love how it looks now!

After days of hard labour ;) I have updated http://www.strangeling.com with many new prints! I have re-arranged the gallery as well, dividing it into categories (Fairy Art, Gothic Art, Alice in Wonderland Art, etc.) which makes it much easier to navigate. I've updated nearly every section of the whole site, so if you haven't dropped by for awhile, check it out! Many of my more recent paintings are now available as prints!

In addition - I have received the OK from my US distributor to begin taking orders for "The Art of Faery"! You may place orders directly on my site for signed copies! Just click here: http://www.strangeling.com/artoffaery.html for details. The book is $24.99 and I would be happy to personalize it with a message upon request. It should be in most US bookstores in about two weeks, and is currently available for pre-order at most online booksellers. If you have already ordered it from Amazon.com or would prefer to purchase it from your local bookstore but would still like it autographed, I would be happy to sign or personalize your copy - just email me for instructions. Please note - the book is still in early phases of distribution, so orders placed will be subject to a 1-2 week delay. Let me know if anybody has questions!

MOM:(duckycat) - I sent you one of my early advance copies, so you should get that in the mail soon ;)

SISTERS: (sunkachina and kenderdrache) I'll have copies for you guys shortly, so don't buy any!

OK - I'd love feedback about the new website layout - please let me know if there are any incorrect links, page errors, mistakes, or whatever!

I'm going to bed, I'm soooo exhausted. Tomorrow I will happily be back to painting, and doing some sketches for a Vampire commission!!!! Good night!!!

Good morning!

I'm trying to wade through some of the emails that have piled up while I spent the last couple of days working on my website, hehe. After I get some of the more pressing ones taken care of, I will begin painting! I'll update here with the webcam link when I'm ready =)

Getting ready to paint!

I went through a ton of email, and I have a ton left, but I'm antsy to paint! I'm starting now - you can watch me here!

I'm not sure what all I'm going to work on right now - I know I want to do some more Fairytale art (after working on my gallery last night, I got excited to make more fairytale pieces!). I'm thinking about doing another Red Riding Hood - maybe this time showing the Wolf! I'll probably start several pieces, and then work on whichever one feels right to work on right now.

Meh.

I'm beat - I've been tired all day from working on my website overtime the past couple of days - it's very draining. I've been dreaming in html. I've got my emailbox down to 78 email (not many for me!), and I'll wade through the rest tomorrow. I started work on my "Red Riding Hood & The Wolf" painting and it's coming along nicely =)

I'm going to chill out and read for the rest of the night. I have a bottle of vanilla vodka that needs attending to ;)
