We've been having fun visiting with family this past week or two! My studio is up and running and (other than the internet connection, which is still dodgy) it's going smoothly.
Even though we've been having fun seeing everybody, etc. - I'm still looking forward to getting back to our "regular" home Florida in a few days - it's so cold here, and there's SNOW. I don't like cold, don't like snow. Bah humbug. We'll be home soon though, and I'll have my palm trees =) We'll be back up at this place for Christmas though, for sure. Lots of going back and forth, but now with both studios in operation I'm able to work with no interruption, and orders & shipping will never be affected nor eBay stuff shut down any more - yay! =)
I have a brand new ORIGINAL painting (Kali - a new Hindu piece, and she is READY-TO-HANG!), three new ACEOs, and the #01 Lt. Ed. Hand Embsllished Canvas print for my "Nutcracker Suite" painting - all starting at ONE PENNY!
First off is the new original painting - "Kali" - quite large at 24" high and 6" wide - and wow, there is a lot of colour squeezed into this one! I've long been fascinated with Hindu artwork - devotional images of the beautiful gods and goddesses with their mysterious blue skin used to intrigue me as a child. Kali - possibly my favourite - an incarnation of the mother goddess - but a VERY powerful force to be reckoned with! She's often depicted with severed heads, wreaking her vengence on those who cross her.... I've taken a more subtle approach and have given her a garland of skulls. I've portrayed her in the traditional Daksinakali dancing pose, and this REALLY is a beautiful painting. The colours are MUCH better and more vibrant in real life. It's a great size & shape -it truly can be the focus of any room, or tucked away in a narrow niche or nook. She is a 24"x6" painting on cradled masonite - which has a 2" deep Gallery-Style wood cradle so NO FRAMING NEEDED - Matt has even put a hanger on there for you already. She is up for sale on eBay - a seven day auction starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the night of Sunday, December 7th at 9:49 PM Central Time and you can see her here:

Next up - the #01 (first in the edition!) Lt. Ed. hand painted CANVAS print for my beautiful "Nutcracker Suite" painting - in plenty of time for Christmas, too! She's up for a penny auction, 7 days, ending on the evening of Sunday, December 7th at 5:00PM Central time - check her out here:

Next are 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 7-day auctions ending on the evening of Sunday, December 7th, 5:03PM -5:09PM Central Time.
