Marie Masquerade

Three new paintings, ACEOS, canvases, and LAST POST before we leave!

Man, we have been so busy getting everything taken care of before we leave on our trip!

Matt still hasn't figured out where we're going on our anniversary vacation, hehe - he's going to be surprised =)

Heather/Brian is going to keep an eye out the house & kitties while we're gone. I feel bad leaving Mama Wolf since we've only had her a month and now we're going to be gone for a week. At least Heather/Brian will keep her company.

Let me see - on the art front - I have so much new stuff! A brand new original painting ( OSWOA™ sized!), two new never before seen canvas prints (Ferrets & Sugar Gliders!), other canvas prints, ACEOs, etc. All of these auctions, and my other auctions, will not be affected by my vacation in any way since I'll be back home in time for them to end. So bid as usual! However my eBay store & fixed price listings are on "pause" so it looks like they have disappeared. Don't worry - my eBay store items & sale prints, etc. will be back as soon as I get home. In the meantime you are welcome to order from my website www.strangeling.com - please keep in mind that orders & emails will be processed upon my return on March 3rd. Just a head's up! =)

First is my little OSWOA™ painting! OSWOA™ stands for "Original Small Work of Art" - if you search OSWOA on eBay you'll find lots of actual original artworks from great artists - all the same size - 4"x6" - that is a great size because it is a standard photo size, perfect for photo albums, photo sleeves, frames, etc. Very cute & small, but slightly larger than my "MINI" paintings.

"Blonde Fairy Princess" ORIGINAL PAINTING OSWOA™

Now - I have two other new paintings that I finished these past few days - called "Winged Ferret" and "Sugar Gliders"- both are pet portrait paintings - the originals have already been sold and have good homes. But I have the next best thing - the #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas prints!

BRAND NEW: "Sugar Gliders" 11x14" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

BRAND NEW: "Winged Ferret" 11x14" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

I also have the #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas print for my recent paintings - "Silver Wolf" & "Hints of Gold"....

"Silver Wolf" 11x14" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

& "Hints of Gold" 8x10" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

Next up are the ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are, consult the individual auction descriptions - very cute little pieces of artwork....

"Portrait of Medusa" ACEO

& "Red Rita" ACEO

& "Dark Mardi Gras" ACEO

& "Luna" ACEO

& "A Millipede Friend" ACEO

& "Mermaid of the Deep" ACEO

& "Swamp Spirit" ACEO

& "Where is My Valentine?" ACEO

All right folks - this is my last update before I leave on my trip. I will be back on March 3rd, and will have lots of new original paintings, minis, sale prints (and all the open editions for the new canvas prints, etc.) asap! Again - feel free to bid as usual on my eBay auctions, etc. - they will not be affected in any way since I will be back home from my trip before the auctions end =)

If anybody needs to contact me while I am gone, and it is important, I should hopefully be able to check my email a couple of times (hopefully) on vacation - I do not know what computer access there will be. Just email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with "URGENT" in the subject line, if it is urgent. Family members - I will let you know how to contact us, don't worry ;)

Off to finish up some more stuff before we leave......
