I am BACK from FaerieCon!!
What a great time! I can't believe how many fans, fellow artists, and fun people I got to meet. It was crazy! Thank you to ALL of you who came to see me. I can barely wrap my brain around all of the people (especially my online friends!) I met while there, I couldn't even begin to list everybody. Thank you ALL =)
From a business standpoint, it was a rousing success. We were swamped with customers & fans almost the whole time, and we did really, really well. I felt like a celebrity! =) In fact we've already signed up for a booth next year =) So hopefully we'll see you all in 2008!
With the 3 day convention and a total of 4 days worth of driving, I'm very very frazzled right now though. I have about a thousand emails and countless orders to catch up on. I haven't gotten much chance to get online, look at LiveJournal, etc. for over a week now, and I'm going to do my best to get caught up over the next few days. Matt is getting all of the orders taken care of now. Thank you all for your patience =)
Got a new painting to show you though at least! It's called "Magnificent Wings" and features (appropriately enough) a fairy with some of the most magnificent wings I've ever painted. Swirls of every colour, with veins of gold - shimmering and glistening, and the fairy's eyes are just as magnificent - flecks of jewel toned colours and sparkles - this really is a beautiful piece. It's on a sturdy canvas panel too, so she'd be very easy to pop right into any standard frame with no hassle, and she's even been varnished to a glossy finish to bring out a depth of colour and a layer of extra protection against the elements. It is painted in acrylics and measures 12"x16" - she'd make a magnificent accent to almost any room! She is up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the evening of Tuesday, October 23rd at 9:18PM Central Time. You can see it below - click on this sneak preview image to see the whole painting:

Now, GREAT news for those of you folks who are online image/graphics hobbyists - makers of tubes, signature tags, websets, members of the groups for PSP and other image/graphics groups. I have a brand NEW graphics package up at CILM! The new package (package "J") features some of my best & most popular paintings, including "Tribal Fairy", "The Last Leaves", "Violet Sometimes", "Autumn Night Fairy", several Mermaids and more! There are also the options up at CILM to buy a "Combo Pack" where you can get of my previous packages at a discounted sale price, as well as "Custom Packs" where you can piece together your OWN package, from the different images.

If you're not familiar with online graphics as a hobby - you might want to look into it. It's a FUN way to spend time doing something creative, without the whole "having to paint something yourself" part, hehe. You get to create your own designs and graphics on the computer using my paintings, officially and with my blessing. For ANY questions regarding usage of my images as tubes or tags, this is handled by CILM (not by me myself) - you can contact them here: email@example.com or call them: Customer Service Number Call (toll-free in the USA): 1-877-264-2456
I'd better go, I have an insane amount of work to catch up on, and of course - new paintings to paint! If you don't hear much from me in the next couple of days, please forgive me, I'll be swamped in emails, orders & paint! =)
