I think I just said Wow, four times in a row. These new ones are all great, the colors combinations in them set them apart from most of the work I've seen from you. I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford these I wouldn't be to surprised if the Alice in Wonderland went for over 200. Good luck and keep up the good work. ~ you're fan, Kevin (sr71flyr)
Hehe, I hope so! Thank you!
I LOVE "Alice and the Caterpillar"! If I had the money it would be mine! I really enjoyed peeking in on your webcam through out the day yesterday when you were painting "Alice" too.
I do have a question... At first I thought it was just the one e-mail but all of your mailing list e-mails don't have click-able links? Is that something you can fix on your end? My links are click-able on all e-mails I send but I'm not really sure why or how they get that way. Anywhoo just wondering :)
I think that the hypertext links don't show up since it is a "mass email" situation (since not all email programs are html-friendly). I can't think of a way to get around it right now. All you have to do is copy and paste the link into your URL field though, that'll get you there.
Ya, That's what I've been doing, the old "copy and paste". If I figure out how mine are all linked I'll let you know.
Well it's obvious that your "Alice and the Caterpillar" is a big hit! Congrats :) I'm going to get back to painting again this week after about 2 weeks off.
The alice one is super cute...her face and hair turned out so very well. The frog one is just darling too. :) Aqua fae is bit more endowed than what you normally do O.O ;)
Lol, yeah - I thought I'd do a little curvy fairy for once =)
The bug girl is my favorite! I think that's one of your cutest ones yet. I just hope that she's friends with the bug, and isn't planning on eating it (or vice versa)! I'm rather fond of insects. :)
I love bugs. One of the first books I ever read was "Insect Engineers: The Story of Ants". Don't worry, like me, my faeries are all strictly vegetarian!

I was really happy with your paintings as well this time...I'm absolutely dying for the Alice in Wonderland piece as my entire room is a constantly growing resource of Alice in Wonderland posters, screenshots, and art inspired by the books. I really hope she doesn't go over $200, although it would make sense since this is my favorite painting you've ever done.
I was wondering if you'd ever paint Alice with black hair like the real Alice (instead of the Disney one)?
Lol, a mailing list I am on just had a huge discussion about Alice's original hair colour. The earliest illustrations show her with light (b&w illustration, looks blonde) hair, but Alice Liddel had dark brown hair.
Alice Liddell of course, is the little girl that Lewis Carroll based the stories on.

It was dark brown? I'd forgotten that...although I think I only saw a b&w photo so it's easy for me to get confused. :) It still fascinates me the way he did his author name (I can't think of the right word for that...by name or something...that's not quite it) so similar to Alice Liddell's.

We had a huge discussion about this all the way back in...oh, eighth grade (that's when the obsession began, lol).
Once again, it's a beautiful painting...if I don't end up bidding on the original, I will for sure order a print :)
I'll definitely offer her as a print =)
I love Lewis Carroll (anagrams are a cool way to come up with a pen name!). Did you ever read any of his mathematical work? I used to be obsessed with his logic problems. My Calculus II teacher (she was a big Alice fan too) used to write one of his math problems on the board every morning and we did them for extra credit =)
