I wish where I lived had more vegetarian products available. It's so expensive here. I'm not a complete vegetarian but it would make it easier if I had more choices.
You can tell it's a big pic...the head is huge compared to your hand! :)
all that great fooooood! YUM.....making me hungry! ;)
Wow, that a big size! thats more in the department of my usual oil paintings of dragons he he. Why the huge canvas.. is it a commission or for your ebay store? Cant wait to see it when its done!
I just thought it would be fun to do a really big one! This one has a big character in it too, usually even in my big paintings the characters stay pretty small, hehe.
That painting is coming along beautifully! Did you take a different approach with the eyes this time? I like it! The colors in them are so gorgeous. I love to watch you paint, it actually reminds me of the proper painting techniques and stuff that I have forgotten since my last painting class (which was years ago sadly).
For those of you reading this- painting is hard. Really hard. Jasmine just makes it look easy 'cause she's good like that ;-D
Hehe, thank you!!! >^__^<
Since the character in this one is so large I did spend some extra time on the eyes - kind of like a rainbow they fade from purple to blue to green to yellow.... very cool effect so far - this one is going to be colourful!!!
Forget being afraid of YOU...Did they have any large Gator bites??? LoL
:::still nervous over anything deeper than a puddle there::::
im watchin ur paint cam it cheers me up :) she looks very cute so far
Ooo! Her eyes look like beautiful jewels! Lovely. ^_^
Awww, it's nice that the deer are trusting. People probably don't pester them. People are always shooting animals that wander out too far from the reserves where I live. I was doing yard work last year when someone went running through my yard with a rifle. He was chasing a chacalaca and killed it when it hid in some bushes. I called the animal protection people, but they seemed didn't seem interested and never came by.

Jasmine on tv!
I'm a big fan of your art and I just wanted to let you know, in case you didnt know already that some of your artwork was just on tv! I was just watching the show "World of Tattoos" on the Hi Definition Discovery Channel and they were interviewing a woman about a tatoo contest and she had one of your "thoughtful fairies" tattooed on her upper arm!
How cool is that?!
Holy cow!!! That is awesome!!!!! I'll have to try to catch that!!!!
A lot of people seem to have my Thoughtful Fairies tattooed on them I've had a few fans send me photos even - I wonder if it was one of them?:

Re: Jasmine on tv!
wow, thats a lot of tatoos! the one i saw looked like the fairy in the last pic you posted, except it was monochromatic in shades of blue or maybe grey and i think the wings might of been a little different? i'm not sure, but it was definatly the same pose. i only got a quick look at it but the fairy was very distinctly "jasmine-style"!
well, congradulations on your tv appearance of sorts! have a nice evening!
It was probably my "Thoughtful Fairy #3" - http://www.strangeling.com/thoughtfulfairy.jpg
- is one of my most popular images (it was one of the pieces that was in "The Art of Faery" book).
Thank you again for letting me know! That totally made my day, hehe!!!! I'll keep an eye out for the show again - I'll try to catch it!
Gosh! How COOOL is that, to have YOUR art tattooed on folks! Awesome!!
Wow Jasmine so famous! Happy for you as usual - congrats!
Glad to hear you had a little fun and bought so many yummy meat substitutes!!! ;) hehe I did the same thing today actually! Went to the grocery store and stocked up on all my staples!!! They've gotten sooo good at making those things taste good! I'm still waiting for when they improve soy cheese though. =P
That is too neat that the girl you went to the street market with had one of Nedda's buttons! =D
*peeks at the painting* It's still mostly grisaille now . . . looks like another captive fairy so far. *dances* =) Your fairies are sooo pretty.
Yeah, I'm not too big on soy cheese >__<
Almond cheese is pretty good though!
Cheese is pretty much the deciding factor that keeps me vegetarian as opposed to vegan, hehe. I don't drink milk, I don't like eggs, but I'm a big mousie when it comes to cheese!
I've never had almond cheese. I'll have to try it. ^_^
Yeah, I'm pretty much vegetarian. I have meat occasionally if I'm out a restaurant and it's in a dish I order or if someone else is cooking for me. I'm thinking I might go for it now though and be come a complete vegetarian! hehe. I tried to eat some chicken the other day and almost got sick from it, just thinking about it . . . so I guess it's for the best. Besides, I've gotten so addicted to the meat substitutes and I never cook meat anyway . . . =) hehe
Yeah, I'm a little mousie too. Cheese is actually my favorite food! =) LOL
whole foods in florida is really good. :-)
Your painting is looking grogeous, her eyes are really pretty! Can't wait to see it finished!
watching the news looks like another hurricane may hit us ....again next weekend!!!
when will it all end?
good grief, not sure in polk county fla.
Meep! ::sigh:: I guess it's time to put the porch furniture back in the garage.....
I'm not going to even bother landscaping until hurricane season is over, lol.
I had lots of fun, but I hope Mel didn't terrorize your kitties too much. ;)
We definately need to make some plans sometime...and maybe we can even swing a kidless day so there is less distraction. ;)
Lol - Mel is fun!
Quan-Yin didn't come back downstairs until a few hours after you left though, hehe!!!
