Still a little miffed/depressed that the Bigfoot news is looking like a hoax =( Hmph.
Tropical Storm Fay (tell me, doesn't that sound like a painting I'd do, lol?) - looks like she's going to turn Hurricane and stop by our neck of the woods for a bit. I don't anticipate it causing much trouble from us (not from a customer service angle at least). We've been through rough hurricanes in the past and our house is built very solid, and since we're on Disney's power grid, we've never lost power =) But if for some reason you don't hear anything from me around Tuesday/Wednesday, it could potentially be storm related. (Hopefully though, she'll just peter out into a rainstorm over the Gulf).
Okay, art stuff. I have a brand new Halloween/Autumn themed original (ready-to-hang!) painting for you tonight called "Ghost of the Pumpkin Patch," as well as my "Black Orchid Fairy" prints available as this week's SALE prints! Also a quick reminder that I will be at Dragon*Con coming up very soon (August 29th - September 1st!) in Atlanta, Georgia!
A lot of you seem to have questions about Dragon*Con - for many of you coming to see me, it may be your first time there, or at any fantasy convention. Please, please, please - feel free to simply email me at JasmineToad@aol.com if you have absolutely ANY questions, even if they seem silly! I'm always happy to answer questions, give suggestions, give directions, show maps, tips, etc. and provide information about the Dragon*Con Art Show and my appearance there, ask away - Matt or I will try to answer your questions right away. Also - if you're coming "for sure," and you would like me to bring anything special for you (a specific print, a stretched canvas print, anything like that) - I have a box I keep "special requests" in, and will hold it for you until you come to my booth =) My prices at Dragon*Con are very discounted for those of you who come in person to see me, so you really can get a bargain =) The Dragon*Con Art Show is held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta - the lower level. Dragon*Con can be large and confusingly big, so just remember - Art Show = Hyatt Regency Atlanta! I'll be there all day every day. I have so many new original paintings I'll be debuting, as well as tons of new cameo pendants, stretched ready-to-hang canvases, mini-prints, signed prints, statues & figurines, books & merchandise. I'll also be painting "LIVE" if you'd like to see how I paint!
Next is the new original painting! It is called "Ghost of the Pumpkin Patch" - I'm starting with the Halloween art early this year (there will be plenty more to come, too!). This is a hauntingly lovely painting - a big eyed wistful ghostly girl floats through the mists of an abandoned pumpkin patch. Subtle colours and a bleak landscape give this piece a rather haunted feel, with some sun-bleached picked-over pumpkins, and the lonesome look of the "ghost." This is an ORIGINAL PAINTING - acrylic paints on GALLERY STYLE CRADLED MASONITE - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! Quite adorable, and quite large as well, measuring 16"x20". It is up for a PENNY auction at eBay - going for 7 days ending on Sunday, August 24th at 6:12PM Central Time. Yes this auction really is starting at a penny, so everybody can get a chance at it - click below on the sneak preview thumbnail image to see the whole painting:
