My Yeti!

My friend and longtime customer Justine (aka Tinkywitch) surprised us at the Celebration Art Festival last weekend with one of the COOLEST things ever!

You know my little Yeti guy that I paint sometimes? Like in Below Zero or in My Very Strange Valentine? He's a special character to me, he and his girlfriend remind me of me and Matt (like in my icon!).

Anyway, at the art show Justine came and surprised us with a PERFECT plush version of him that she totally made herself! He is exact in every way, even his claws. Amazing - we were speechless!

I thought I'd post a couple pics - here I am hugging him:

and here is Justine & Matt with his Yeti:

I told her she should make more to sell on Etsy for folks who want their own Jasmine Yeti! We shall see.... ;)

Thank you so much to my wonderful friend/collector Carmen for snapping the photos!

We had such a wonderful time at the show. Now though my walls are bare! We sold so many paintings, I can hardly remember them all. The Violet Duchess is gone, Poe is gone (I had to find a new home for her, as her original collector had a medical emergency), Steampunk Carousel is gone, Rapunzel in Rococo is gone, Pet Trilobite is gone, Nautilus Princess is gone, a ton of the other small paintings I brought to the show are gone.

But no fear, I'm painting more. I finished the Mother's Day painting for the Bradford Exchange Holiday Flag series yesterday, and I'm finishing up the "Fourth of July" fairy painting for the Holiday Flag series today. After I get approval on these I'll post them. I can't sell prints as per the licensing contract but I can definitely sell the originals =)

We'll be up in Kansas City visiting family for Easter so I'll be in Strangeling Studios North (that's what I call our new little secondary house up there) for a while. It's fun having two studios/houses. It's confusing though too, trying to remember what supplies I have at which house, or remembering to pay homeowners association fees on a house that's 1250 miles away =P

Today though, I need to do the Fourth of July painting and then finish doing my taxes. It's kind of ironic painting a fairy sitting on an Uncle Sam hat the same day I fork over all my money to said Uncle Sam, lol.

Okay, off to painting I go. Here's a picture of Matt & I in our art show booth =)

Oh yes, check out my only original paintings LEFT here:
