I have a brand new original painting for you tonight- "A Tentacled Friend" - a lovely original featuring a mermaid (or a sea nymph? you can't really see her tail) hugging a grand Octopus! Also a quick head's up - I'm out of town these next few days, shouldn't affect much, my auction-style listings for original paintings up at eBay won't be ending until I get back home, so bidding isn't affected. If you have already paid for all existing orders, no worries. If you haven't paid for your items yet, or are wanting to place new orders - please read below for details & dates.
First - vacation ordering info. Yep, I am getting ready to go out of town (just for a few days). I'm leaving very early this Sunday the 17th and I'll be back home by this coming Thursday, May 21st. Not a big deal, but I will not have much access to a computer or be able to ship out packages during that time as I'll be many miles away in another country. If you have unpaid items or orders, and if you can get payment to me before this Friday (tomorrow the 15th) by Noon Eastern Time - (Paypal would work best, send to JasmineToad@aol.com ) - I can easily get your package shipped out Saturday before I leave. Otherwise - no hurry on payment - I will be back home soon and can easily ship out your package after I get back home on Thursday. Not a problem either way, whatever is easiest for you! Please let me know asap if you have any questions - or if your order is very time sensitive or anything like that - let me know asap (I can Express Mail it if absolutely necessary, hehe!). I am not sure what kind of email access I will have while I am gone, so please forgive me if there is a delay in my email responses after I have left. You can also place new orders on strangeling.com - please just understand that shipping, order confirmations, and emails will be attended to after I return May 21st. Again - PLEASE feel free to bid as usual - the auctions won't be affected by my absence in any way - I'll be back home in time to ship out! Some items in my eBay store will go "in vacation mode" and disappear temporarily, reappearing upon my return, and my Etsy shop will be in auto-response mode too.
The new original painting - "My Tentacled Friend"! A beautiful, slightly grumpy girl (a mermaid? a sea nymph?) is hugging a lovely great octopus! I love octopi and all cephalopods. Yay for tentacles! It is a tall, narrow painting - 24" in height by 6" wide - this really is a stunning piece - it truly can be the focus of any room. This is an ORIGINAL PAINTING - not a print of any kind! It is on WOOD CRADLED MASONITE - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so she is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! Of course you can always add a frame if you want (if it's gallery profile, as this is 2" thick!), but she looks awesome by herself too. I've painted the wooden sides a glossy black, so it looks pretty sharp. She is up for sale on eBay - a ten day auction starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the evening of Sunday, May 24th at 6:54 PM Central Time and you can see her here:

Enjoy! I will probably do one more artwork post before I leave - and then I'll be back on the 21st! Happy bidding!
Until next time...
