I have been working on an oil painting - a stylized portrait of Marie Antoinette - I'm just working on her on and off while I do my usual paintings - I might get her finished before I leave though, I don't know yet if it will be one I'll sell or not, I will keep you posted either way.
In the meantime, I have some more new art stuff! A new painting, a couple of more original Zippo production drawings (along with the corresponding lighters), and a new Hot Topic item.
I will be out of town (once again, but this will be vacation, not work-related!) from October 6th - October 15th. I will have limited access during that time so my eBay store will be put on pause. This will not affect my usual eBay auction-style listings and my website will be running as normal, so still feel free to bid & buy while I am gone. If you have a current order with me and would like your order shipped before I leave for my trip, please send payment before this Thursday evening, October 5th at 6:00PM Eastern Time. Orders placed and paid for after that time will be shipped upon my return on the 15th.
Okay now! Here is my latest original painting - she is a beautiful painting in her own right, but she would also make a beautiful Halloween decoration that could be treasured by generations to come. One of my paintings on a wood slice with bark - very cool! Click below to see:

Isn't she cute?
Next up are two more ORIGINAL drawings I did for Zippo. These are line-art for the images they licensed from me for lighters. Not only do you get the original artwork, you also get one of the collectible metal lighters! These are the last couple for now (there are four total).

Then also I have a new item in the Hot Topic stores, you can also see it on their website - a 6" vinyl sticker based on my "My Three Kitties" painting - too cute! (and only $2.99!!):

Let me think.....not much else is going on. I've been catching up madly on work and painting a lot, trying to get everything done before we leave on our trip at the end of this week. I feel silly for having scheduled our vacation so close to the oil painting class retreat, but at the time I booked it I didn't know when the class would be. Busy times indeed.
I'm not done painting for today either - I'll be working on the Marie Antoinette oil painting on my webcam - you can watch me here:

Off I go!
