"Sitting on a Sunflower" - New Original Painting (Charity auction!) - Hamilton Collection..... [Mar. 31st, 2010|09:02 pm]

Hi everyone!

I have a new original painting to show you - another one featuring one of my Hamilton Characters - this one features "Silly Sunny" - the sunflower fairy from my Fairytale Garden series. In the past, as a Hamilton/Bradford Exclusive I haven't offered original artwork of Sunny to the public, but now with permission here you have her - an ultimate collectible! It's a charity auction, with proceeds going to a very special organization. Also - my brother-in-law Chris at Magical_Figurines has a new little Dragon statue (my "Amber" dragon) up for a penny auction, and I've signed the CoA of course!

First - the new original painting! "Sitting on a Sunflower" is the title - featuring one of my popular characters, Silly Sunny! She is shown here in my painting sitting (you guessed it) on a sunflower, in a field of sunflowers in front of a bright blue sky. The colours in this are gorgeous - and there is also a lovely big bumblebee. Perfect painting for springtime.. Many of you know Sunny from my Hamilton Collection - she is one of the statues in the "Fairytale Garden" series. This however is the VERY FIRST time I have been able to offer my original artwork of Sunny to the public myself! With special permission (she is a Bradford Group exclusive character) I am very happy to make this original piece available to the public - a perfect complement for any of my collectors. It is an original 12"x16" acrylic painting on 2" deep craded masonite, ready to HANG! (No frame needed!). Also - please note - this is also a CHARITY auction, 50% of the proceeds goes to Kansas City Community Gardens. KCCG is a wonderful organization that has been a part of my life since I was a little girl, as my Uncle Ben is the director. It is a charitable group that helps low-income families grow their own food through urban gardening and also has educational programs for children. 50% of all money from this painting goes directly to KCCG through eBay's MissionFish Program. She's up starting at just one penny on eBay for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Saturday, April 10th at 7:40PM Central Time:



"Sitting on a Sunflower" featuring Silly Sunny - ORIGINAL PAINTING


Don't know who Sunny is? She is one of the characters you can collect as a figurine through the Hamilton Collection. Specifically she is part of my Fairytale Garden series that starts with her sister "Ravishing Rosetta" (then "Darling Daisy," and then "Silly Sunny")- to subscribe to the collection of statues - click below for more info:

Jasmine's Fairytale Garden Collection



or to order just "Silly Sunny" statue by herself, even internationally - she is up at "The Realm" HERE

Now as an exclusive character I've developed with the Bradford Group, she is only licensed with them (in other words, no Zazzle merchandise, no other non-Bradford merchandise). I am allowed though to offer prints of her, lucky you! To order prints, giant posters (up to 48" high), get framed prints, etc. just click the link below...

And yes - as I mentioned previously my brother-in-law Chris has a penny auction for my lovely little Dragon figurine "Amber"! And he ships anywhere in the world, happily! Please note - unlike some other merchandise, his quantities on Hamilton/Bradofrd collectibles is EXTREMELY limited. Extremely limited meaning he literally has one or two of each kind in stock. So - if you see one you like, you'd better bid on that auction - because it's unlikely he'll be able to re-list additional ones of that character. These auctions from Chris are truly one of a kind too, because I have SIGNED the certificates of authenticity for each statue (and dated). Unless you buy from Chris, you can't really get a signed one (since they normally only ship from the Bradford Group). Since these were my personal samples, I have signed the certificates all in person and mailed the statues to Chris to offer to you guys. There are many different Hamilton Collection statues that he will be listing over the next few weeks/months - and again, he only has one or two of each one, so if you ever want one - be sure to bid!

Penny Statue Auctions from Chris at Magical_Figurines

Or directly - "Amber" is up for penny auction ending Tuesday, April 6th at 8:16 PM Central Time - "Amber" is a DRAGON statue from my "Jeweled Protectors" series - a lovely golden & purple dragon - beautiful amber-coloured gems hand-set for extra sparkle - SIGNED CoA, by me, of course! This auction is for the statue numbered #0183A in the edition. Click here to see Amber:

Buying from Chris is a great way to get individual figurines (ie, in case you didn't subscribe to the whole collection - you can get some of the later issues!!), sometimes even before the general public gets them! Also it's a great way to get them if they're not typically available in your country. And it's the ONLY way to get them with the Certificates actually signed by me =)

Enjoy!
