Geez, I have been so busy!
I'm mad - I had thought that my scanner (of the past 8 years) had conked out on me, halfway through scanning my new painting. So we had to go to Office Max to buy an emergency scanner. And when I got home, on a whim - I tried the new cord on the old scanner, and it works fine. So I guess the old cord is what conked out on me =P
Well, now I have a new backup scanner just in case, I guess. I much prefer my old scanner, I'm going to use it until it dies!
I have a new original painting (book illustration!), Canvas prints for "Sea Beacon", and SALE prints for "Sea Beacon" for you today! Also, just a reminder - I'm running a 25% off EVERYTHING sale in my eBay store right now through the end of the week, so check it out!
As you may know, I'm illustrating a book of short stories. It's a daunting task requiring dozens of illustrations, but I have just finished the third one and she turned out soooo pretty! I'm able to offer this piece and the subsequent paintings for sale along the way, so be on the lookout for more soon. The book will not be out for quite some time, but I will let you know when it is published, too.
"Fiona" is the name - it is a portrait of one of the girls in the book of short stories I'm doing the illustrations for. It is a gorgeous painting - I'm very proud of her. In the book, Fiona is a girl-creature who lives atop a range of snowy mountains, in a land of cold and ice. She is a friend/protector of the icy unicorns who live up there, and she has two tiny magical horns on her head, if you look closely. This is a portrait-style painting of Fiona, showing her violet eyes looking rather thoughtful, with her pale hair blowing in the wind. She's quite large and detailed - measuring 16"x20" - original acrylics on sheet of canvas. This piece may be of particular interest to collectors as she will be published in an upcoming book (ie, she might be famous someday, hehe!). This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the evening of Saturday, November 24th at 7:43PM Central Time. You can see her below, just click on the sneak-peek of her to see the whole painting:
