New Artwork!!!!!!! [Sep. 26th, 2004|10:22 pm]

It's still windy out, but it looks like it's dying down out there. The frogs are back climbing on my doors and windows again, which is a good sign, lol. Poor little things - I guess they just hide during hurricanes - it looks like they made it through okay though!

I've got a couple of new pieces to share with you all!

The first was actually a custom commission, but the client was kind enough to give his blessing to offer her as prints for sale, so I've got her up on sale at eBay for only $10 this week:

"A Little Batty"

(The original has already been spoken for, since it's a commission!).

I have finished a brand new original painting today too - kind of a self portrait (like 99.9% of my art, but this one's a little more realistic, hehe). Here she is:

"By Starlight"

I was going to try to get to the rest of my emails tonight, but I'm so worn out from the painting and the hurricane and all, I think I'll have to catch up on that tomorrow morning. It looks like the Post Office will be closed tomorrow, so I don't have to worry about shipping out stuff until at least Tuesday.

G'night all!

There's something really spooky about By Starlight-- Matt and I agree. It's got an ethereal quality. Or maybe it's just seeing you blonde again!

I love "By Starlight"! She's so gorgeous (hehe, I just called you gorgeous!) I love her makeup, and I love it when you make eyes two colors like that, and I love seeing your blondes since they are rare!

"A Little Batty" is quite a cutie too! Love that blue!

I really like "By Starlight". The colors and textures are sensual.

In fact, I really like all the self portrait pieces. The little doll-fairies are nice too, but they creep me out somewhat (but then, I never liked dolls - I had TONS of stuffed animals, but I never even owned one Barbie doll). ^_^

Have a good night!

Thank you!!! Hehe, they are a little creepy sometimes - especially when I'm working late at night alone and all of their eyes are staaaaring at me..... O__O

It's funny, I have some fans who ONLY buy my stylized big eyed cuties, and others who ONLY buy my more realistic styled paintings. (And others who ONLY buy my nudes, but that's a different story, lol).

Thank you!!

Aha! That's because I really AM a blonde! I naturally have very light blonde hair, but I dye it dark. Here's a pic of me when I was a teenager before I started colouring my hair:

I love both the paintings! They are wonderful!!
Glad all is well there, the weather said it was getting pretty rough for a while, and now we're going to be in for a lot of storms today. All night it sounded like my house was going to fall over from the wind. I have not even slept yet.. hopefully I'll wake up with my power still intact!

Thank you!!! >^__^<

Believe it or not, that's very close to my natural haircolour. I dye it black, you see! Here's a picture of me when I was a teenager before I ever dyed my hair:

Funny, eh?
