Finally getting most of my Christmas shopping done, eek! I always leave it until the last minute, no matter what I set my mind to the year before =P
I have a new original painting - and it's one of my new book illustrations!
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 fourth one and she turned out VERY 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.

"Bijou" is the name - a French name meaning "jewel" - this 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, Bijou is a dragon-like fairy, living in a cave with a red dragon. She's a little self-absorbed, vain, maybe a little haughty, but very pretty! This piece may be of particular interest to collectors, as it will be in an upcoming book featuring dozens of my illustrations. 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, December 29th at 6:00PM Central Time (in time for my return back home after Christmas, so with no delay!). You can see it below - click on the sneak preview picture to see the whole painting:

And just a reminder - I'm going to put my non-auction eBay store items "on pause" starting tomorrow afternoon - since I'm leaving town to visit family over Christmas in a few days. I'll have some other new auctions before I leave, so there will be some stuff to bid on while I'm gone next week, but if you want anything from my eBay store in the next week or so, go buy it now before I leave town, otherwise you'll need to wait until New Year!
That's all for now .....
