All right!!!

It's strange, it's cute, it's a little sad.... click below to see....

"Below Zero"

There's a brief description in there to fill in the storyline....

And now, I've finished some of the "first edition" #01 prints in my hand-painted limited edition canvas prints!

You can see "Fairy Christmas" HERE

And you can see "Pixie Cats" HERE

And you can see "The Star Child" HERE

And you can see "Voodoo in the Bayou" HERE

I also have some open edition prints on sale this week - the new ones are:

"Voodoo in the Bayou" 8"x10": for $10.00 HERE

And I am also running some fun "print set" sales for the holidays! Basically two 8"x10" prints that complement each other well, sold in a set at a discounted sale price!

Sets of "Captive Fairy" with "Starry Night Fairy" are HERE!

Sets of "Alice Falling Down the Rabbit Hole" with "Alice and the Cheshire Cat" are HERE!

I really like the colors you chose too. The plum (is that what you would call that? I can't decide), her black hair, and all the blue. It's wonderful. Fabulous job. I really love it.

Jasmine, how do you get your scans to come out so clean and crisp? Mine always looks kind of blurry...

Thank you, Bonnie!

The most important thing is to scan at a high resolution (300 to 600 dpi) and then be sure to adjust the colours as needed - every scanner scans slightly different. Mine for example washes out a little colour and makes things too light, so I adjust the levels in Photoshop when I am working with the scan. I made a little tutorial on how to scan large paintings on a normal scanner - here:


Also - my paintings themselves are very crip in person - I use true black for shadows and true whites for highlights (even though art professors and critics say not to, I think it looks cool, lol).

I just LOVE your work.

Do you have already have a fairy pic/print with a tiger, leopard, or the like print/color? Basically, my co-workers daughter's room is leopard print and tigers. (with browns, tan and a little dark green). I throught it would be cool to get her one of your prints for Christmas for her room.

Re: Question....

Thank you!!! >^__^<

Actually, I don't think I have any with the big cats! I was thinking about doing a tiger themed piece soon though, since I get a lot of requests for them. The only piece I really have with cats are housecats here: http://www.strangeling.com/pixiecats.html and I do have one with a wolf (not quite the same though, hehe): http://www.strangeling.com/littleredridinghoodandthewolf.html

Awww, cute storyline!!! Both the picture (what an adorable yeti) and the storyline reminds me of our story (me moving from a tropical country to *IMO* terribly cold country just to be with the love of my life). Brrrrrr...

I really really love it. And the story to go with it. For some reason as soon as I saw it, I wanted to called her Lyra...it just fits the way I saw "Northern Lights" in my head.
Hmmmm, I might have to fight Del for it.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the new painting! The yeti is SO cute, I want to grab him and hug him!! I love the story!
So much news! I'm really looking forward to the books! XD
I have to get that Alice set... they are two of my absolute favorite paintings... I don't know why I have not gotten around to buying them yet!
Oooh and Pixie Cats, that's a good memory. That was the first painting I ever saw by you XD

I really love 'Below Zero', it's speaking to me quite a bit. Love isn't always simple and straightforward... the chill and the warmth mixed together works really well.

Congrats on getting into Spectrum 11! I got a hold of 10 here in Australia and it is so worth the investment, I pour over it all the time and there's always something I don't notice each time I open it.
