Busy day today, but I got a lot done. It's always a little crazy when I'm catching up from being out of town!
I'm watching the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. It's the alternative to the Super Bowl, I guess, lol. I've actually seen all four Puppy Bowls over the years (not really intentionally, it just worked out that way). It's really really cute - and they have a kitty half-time show (with little kittens playing with toys). What a great show!
Let me see - lots of great stuff tonight! I have one wonderful new original mermaid painting - one of my BOOK illustrations (and it is FRAMED), and a TON of Valentine's Day themed prints on SALE, canvas print, & New Valentine Cameos!
"Nixie" is a truly gorgeous painting! 22"x26" framed! She really brings a whole new element of beauty and a bright mermaid-y feel just hanging up on my wall. Her name is Nixie - this is a very special painting, as she's going to be featured in an upcoming book of short stories. This is a portrait of Nixie, a mermaid character in the book I am illustrating. Since she will be published, she is certainly of special interest to collectors. Nixie is shown underwater - in the distance a wrecked pirate ship - and in the foreground many colourful clownfish and other tropical fish! And she is framed by my wonderful husband, Matt. I don't often offer work that is already framed, or ready-to-hang, so this is quite special. Again - this is the original painting, on a canvas panel and it has been framed in an elegant 3" wide ornate black & mahogany coloured "open-wood" style frame. I have finished the painting with a glossy varnish and it looks amazing! She is 100% ready-to-hang - just stick her up on a nail on the wall, and you are good to go! She is up in my eBay store at a fixed price where she will remain until purchased (otherwise I'll take her with me to MegaCon next month, so grab her if you like her now!) - you can see her below....and if she's not quite in your budget, feel free to use eBay's "Make Offer" option to make me your best offer - hey, you never know!
