I finished a new painting today!

It was a LOT of fun to do - you can see her here:

"Labyrinth Fairy"

The maze in the painting is a real maze - not a very hard one, lol, but it works!

In addition I have a bunch of new prints on sale!

"Perhaps it continues in three dimensions on the other side of the key-hole? Sometimes the 'end' is only the beginning!"

- I like that thought!!!!

She's lovely! I'm amazed you managed to get her done, painted and up on ebay, considering the mammoth but lovely Starry Night Fairy!
(Which I had to nab as a print, so I'm probably adding to your emails) :)

Hi Jasmine :-D I just bought a print of the starry night fairy. Can you please mail to the address I am including in the note of the paypal payment, rather than the one paypal gives you? It won't let me change it for some reason. It's the same place you mailed the mermaid sticker I purchased from you (though I doubt you'd remember as you probably have hundreds of purchases to deal with at once ^^;). Anyways the name with the payment is Amanda Robbins if that helps :-D

I was watching you paint her, I think she's one of my favorites of yours so far. I can't wait!

I'm sorry to add to your email! But I've got a question! Tomorrow I'm meeting up with earenwe for lunch, and she doesn't eat beef or pork... what are your favorite restaurants on Disney property to find vegetarian entrees? :)

BOMA!!!!

Hehe, Boma is the best!!! Spoodles is good too (they'll fix up a vegetarian platter if you ask and it's wonderful!). I think that they are "dinner only" though =P

The Rainforest Cafes both have good selections, as do pretty much any of the Epcot restaurants. Actually, every restauruant at Disney offers at least one vegetarian option (most of them are on the menu, but if you don't see one just ask the server - they always have something cool). If you're at Epcot for "quick service" - the Mexico Quick service restaurant (Cantina de San Angel) will make almost any of their same items without beef or pork (substituting beans) if you ask nicely, and it's even cheaper. The Morocco quick service (I think you went there with Matt a few days ago) has several vegetarian items.

In the Magic Kingdom we like to go to Cosmic Ray's (the quick service in Tomorrowland) - they have the big "topping bar" for burgers and they have delicious vegetarian Garden Burgers there. Tony's Town Square has some good Italian veggie options, and Liberty Tree Tavern has a vegetarian platter.

At Animal Kingdom either go to Rainforest or Tusker House - Tusker House has a grilled vegetable sandwich with hummus which is yummy, and Rainforest has a bunch of stuff.

At MGM we go to Mama Melrose's (lots of vegetarian Italian options) or Sci-Fi has good salads, veggie burgers, etc.

Of course if they only avoid pork/beef and still eat chicken/turkey/seafood they can probably find stuff to their liking just about anywhere!

Thank you for those suggestions! :-D Turns out Kristy joined us and didn't have her park pass with her - d'oh! - so we ended up going to the Italian place here in Celebration, and we all liked it a lot! :-9

And now I have all your suggestions for next time I find myself in this situation!

Thank you, Deana! I like those colours together a lot!

Hehe, if you'd like to know a secret though - I'm almost OUT of paint and those are some of the only bottles I had left that were very full, LOL!!! Also - you'll often see that smudgy stone texture show up when I'm running low on brushes (My brushes are almost all completely ruined!) - it means I've been mostly finger-painting!

Needless to say, I'm going to the art store tonight, and I'm working on emails during the day - since I'm almost unable to paint!
