I'm thrilled to say that I have FINISHED this year's commissioned portraits that had Christmas deadlines. Go me! No overnight expressing custom paintings at the last minute this year, I planned well.
And of course now I'm extra happy because I've been itching to paint some new non-commissioned paintings that have been forming in my head. Yay!
Tonight in fact, I have a wonderful brand new ORIGINAL painting for you, an amazing piece called "Fairy with Dried Flowers" and also also I have TWO new Wood Altarpieces and TWO new Mermaid Portholes as well! Very cool stuff!
The first new original painting - "Fairy with Dried Flowers"! It is particularly lovely - a beautiful nymph-like fairy is sitting in a murky forest glade. She has a look of sweet melancholy about her, and if you look closely you will see that she has a garland of dried up flowers in her hands. I think that at some time in her life the garland was in full bloom, perhaps to mark an important occasion, and she has held onto it for sentimental value even though it is long past its prime. This is an ORIGINAL PAINTING - not a print of any kind! It is on 2" thick GALLERY STYLE CRADLED MASONITE - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! She is an original acrylic painting and is pretty big too - 16"x20" and is up for sale on eBay - a seven day auction starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the evening of Friday, December 19th at 6:22 PM Central Time and you can see her here:

Next are the new Wood Altarpieces - VERY COOL - you need to see the auction photos to see how cool these are. Both READY-TO-HANG! I have two for you tonight - one features my new "Lady with a Bosch Egg" and the other one features "Marie Masquerade" (in the central portion, and then "Butterflies in Gloom" on one side of her and "Princess with a Himalayan Cat" on the other side, triptych style). Each measures 10"x10" glossy MDF altarpiece panel. These are gothic peaked altarpiece style triptych wood reproductions made with archival dyes. Each is all ready-to-hang, just and is up on eBay for a 7-Day auctions ending the evening of Thursday, December 18th at 6:03 & 6:06 PM Central Time. You can see them below:

Next up! TWO new "Mermaid Portholes!" This time one features my lovely "Sea Turtle Mermaid" and the other one features "Alice in the Pool of Tears". Matt & I have finally (after a lot of thought, and trial & error!) developed a fantastic new product - a series of magical "Mermaid Portholes" - truly like having undersea porthole windows to a beautiful ocean world! READY TO HANG! Each is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting on a 8" round MDF panel, in archival dyes. I can't stress how gorgeous these are! Glossy almost like glass, the colours are vibrant! Each 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". Perfect for a fantasy themed room, or a nautical/marine look, or also great in a bathroom or boat!! Again - you really should see all the photos in the auction below to see what I mean - they're neat! Each is up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for 7-Day auctions - "Sea Turtle Mermaid is ending the evening of Wednesday, December 17th at 6:00 PM Central Time and "Alice in the Pool of Tears" is ending the evening of Thursday, December 18th at 6:00 PM Central Time. You can see both below:
