Today I'm answering mountains of email - I need to get through all of this to get a clear conscience (I guess that's the word I'm looking for, lol) so I can get started on some new paintings =)

Matt and I went to Winter Park today to the farmer's market to stock up on veggies (I bought TONS of stuff!) and to Chamberlin's (health food store). We also made a very brief stop at Universal Studios to ride the Mummy Returns ride, hehe.

I finished up the other two commissions! So tomorrow I'll start on some new originals!!!! So many ideas - I'm not sure which I'll do first. I'd like to do a sequel to my
"Fairy in My Window"
painting I did last month - I had a lot of fun doing that one - all of that crumbly stone..... Or I might get my arse in gear and paint "Cancer" for my Zodiac series. We'll see. I'd like to do another piece featuring my Plague Doctor character (like in my "Alchemist's Plague" painting) - he's such a creepy guy, and I want to include him more. Well, we'll see. For now - it's email answering time!!!!!!

She was up for all of two minutes before she was snatched up with a Buy-It-Now on eBay, lol!

I had prints of her up on eBay back in late June - I still need to get her (and about a million other new pieces) up on my website though, lol!).

hehe. I bought a print of Fairy in My Window. I'd love to see a sequel. The plague doctor character is awesome! I plan on buying a print of the Alchemist's Plague as soon as I feel more stable moneywise. =\ He's such a great character! You truly are very creative, Jasmine. =)

AHHHHHHHHHH!!! I've never seen that Alchemist's Plaque before!! That's AMAZING!!! I'm ordering a doll from a girl on LJ who is an artist, her name is strangedolls and she makes bird dolls that look like your alchemist's plaque character too--except victorian costumes & stuff. Check her out!!

Thank you!!!! >^__^<

Those dolls are way cool!!!!!!!!

I used to have some book when I was a little girl that talked about history and had a chapter on the Black Plague in Europe - there was one picture in there (of the Plague Doctor walking among the dying) and it used to scare the HELL out of me! I'd purposely open it up to that page late at night just to scare myself, lol!!!!
