|That painting I was working on at Dragon*Con......

Guess what? I finished the painting I started at Dragon*Con! Those of you who came to visit me, also got to watch me start & paint "live" on what was a beautiful girl and her dragon. I worked on this piece throughout the art show - I know many of you returned multiple times to check up on her progress (and have emailed, asking about her, hehe), and now she is finally finished!|
"Scarlet Dragon" is the name - a very special painting since she was painted "live" on display at Dragon*Con, already viewed by tens of thousands of people at the convention, and here she is, finally finished here at home. She's quite large and brilliantly coloured - measuring 16"x20" - original acrylics on a sturdy masonite panel (easy to pop right in to any open wood or ready-made 16"x20" frame with no extra work needed!) - varnished to a glossy finish - very striking to see in person! An elf maiden with very soft, liquid-y eyes of many colours sits against a starry sky with a magnificent vivid scarlet dragon friend - she is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 5-Day auction (a little shorter than usual) ending the evening of Wednesday, September 12th at 7:45PM Central Time. Here's a sneak peek - click below for the full picture:

My hardcover books have come in today, thank goodness. I placed the order LAST SPRING, and have had to put so many people on backorder for the hardcovers, I feel awful. So if you have a current back-order for a hardcover book, your order will be shipped asap, yay. If you're placing a new order though, expect some delays because I've pretty much sold out this shipment of hardcovers months ago >__<
On a similar note - NEVER EVER EVER EVER USE XLIBRIS TO PRINT OR PUBLISH ANYTHING. They have been one nightmare after another. I am so glad that I have new (real, actual) publishers for my book now. I never have to talk to XLibris again. The worst service I have ever encountered as a professional in my life, in any capacity.
Back to work I go....
