VERY exciting update today (last before I leave for Halloween!) - I have not just one, but two new types of artwork for you! Matt, his workshop, & I have been working hard coming up with some beautiful new ready-to-hang formats for my artwork, and the new stuff is just so cool you'll have to take a look! A new "Wood Altarpiece" format as well as a new line of magical "Mermaid Portholes" - these are so fun! Also I have four new ACEOs from my latest paintings, as well as a link for you collectors from one of my other collectors who is re-selling the #01 Canvas for Molly Morgan on eBay.
And again, I'm now out of town for the weekend, back on Monday. Orders paid by last night have shipped this morning. All others will ship out after I get back home Monday, and emails will be answered at that time as well. Since I'm gone only a couple days, the eBay, etsy, & website are still up and running as usual - feel free to bid on my auctions, etc. - I'll be back home in just a couple of days so there should be no delay!
Okay! First off, the very first Wood Altarpiece (hopefully the first of several, if you guys like this!) - we've recreated "Alchemy Angel!". This is pretty much in response to all of you who have been asking for physical, non-paper, ready-to-hang ways that everybody could display my altarpiece & triptych style pictures (who aren't able to purchase the original), and here we have it! "Alchemy Angel" - READY TO HANG - this is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting on an MDF altarpiece panel. I can't stress how gorgeous this is! The perfect way to bring "Alchemy Angel" into your home - there's a hanger on the back already. It is a high gloss permanent image (NOT a decal and NOT any sort of decoupage or paper print, it is a heat-set dyed PERMANENT reproduction on wood), on a THICK (.75" or 2cm) MDF panel which has a black finish on all beveled edges & back. It is 10"x10" in a gothic peaked altar style which can be the focus of any room or tucked away in a cozy nook! You really need to see all the photos in the auction below to see what I mean - it's pretty cool! She's up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the afternoon/evening of Sunday, November 9th 4:30PM Central Time. You can see her below:
"Alchemy Angel" NEW Wood Altarpiece
Next up! Some of you may remember my original "Porthole Mermaid." She was adorable in her little porthole window, but alas the original sold last year and I was never quite able to figure out how to reproduce the whole theme/format for other folks who were unable to buy the original. Matt & I have finally (after a lot of thought, and trial & error!) developed a fantastic new product - a series of magical "Mermaid Portholes" - hopefully this will be the first of many. Our first available Mermaid Porthole is, approriately enough, my "Porthole Mermaid" herself! Truly like having an undersea porthole to a magical world! READY TO HANG! This is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting on a 8" round MDF panel. I can't stress how gorgeous this is! Glossy almost like glass, the colours are vibrant! The perfect way to bring "Porthole Mermaid" into your home. The "porthole" frame is VERY LIGHTWEIGHT - it is NOT METAL (it is a cast resin-foam composite) and there is NO GLASS, so you can hang it easily on any wall without worry or exra braces - there's a wire hanger on the back already. Not at all heavy as it looks, I promise! It is a high gloss permanent image (it is a heat-set dyed PERMANENT reproduction on a wood/MDF panel) set into the 12" porthole frame. All in all it is 12"x12" and quite thick - 2" - all a one-piece frame (no, it doesn't open, sorry!). Perfect for a fantasy themed room, or a nautical/marine look, or also great in a bathroom or boat!! I plan on making more of these - they would look great lined up or in a grouping (like you're on a boat or in a submarine!). Again - you really should see all the photos in the auction below to see what I mean - she's neat! She's up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the afternoon/evening of Sunday, November 9th 4:35PM Central Time. You can see her below:

Now for the new ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are (basically tiny hand embellished one of a kind canvas prints, trading card sized and highly collectable), consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are awesome! All are starting at a penny, with no reserve for seven-day auctions ending on the evening/afternoon of Wednesday November 5th, 5:00PM - 5:09PM Central Time
To see them ALL together visit the ACEO section of my store here (they may not have "popped" yet in the store, so if this link doesn't bring them up, just click on all of the individual direct links below!):
See ALL the new ACEOs!

And finally, one of my long time collectors has had to re-sell one of her #01 Lt. Ed. Canvas prints - "Captain Molly Morgan!". This is NOT my auction, but I can happily vouch for the seller that they are legitimate, and is indeed the legitimate #01 canvas being offered by the original collector. In case any of you are interested - check it out below:

Enjoy! I'll be back on Monday night! HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYBODY!!!
