Hi everyone!

Today I have three brand new paintings to show you! "Planetary Witches," "Microcosm: Fawn" and "The Sick Rose." All three original paintings debuted and were SOLD at my "Alchemy Unleashed" gallery show last weekend, but I wanted to make sure you guys online get to see them too! I was careful to scan in each one before the art show, so today I have Prints & Posters for all of them up on Zazzle for you who weren't able to come to the show in person!

Also a quick note - for you folks who are ONLY interested in original paintings - the current paintings left are all up in my store on eBay here - click below:

Jasmine's Remaining ORIGINAL Paintings are HERE

Okay - the first one is one of my very best so far - "Microcosm: Fawn" - one of the centerpiece paintings I created for my first gallery show - Alchemy Unleashed! The original painting itself SOLD there at the show, but luckily I scanned her in and have prints, etc. available. Combining the notion of the Microcosm (universe on a small scale) with the alchemical pursuit of creating life within a glass bottle - hence a tiny fawn in a Florence flask. My own original acrylic painting - the original was 16"x20" acrylic on panel. Again, the original painting itself sold at the gallery, but I have prints & posters available - All sizes from 11x14 ($13.90) all the way up to 52"x65" and you can even add on custom framing, matting, etc. or just have her as a poster! You can see her below and zoom in at all the details, etc.:

The next painting was a very neat triptych (three paneled) piece, but I've been able to crop it down into a normal rectangle for prints and looks quite sharp that way as well! "Planetary Witches" - again, the original painting itself sold there at the show, but luckily I scanned it in and have prints, etc. available. You may recognize my witchy sisters from my other work, these three are very cute with their pointy hats of red, white & black Each represents the planetary forces for Mars, the Earth, and Venus and were an integral part of my Alchemy show. For the original painting itself, my husband Matt created a really cool wooden medieval-style triptych frame! My own original acrylic painting - the original was 22"x22" acrylic on panel. The original painting itself sold at the gallery, but I have prints & posters available - All sizes from 11x13 ($13.90) all the way up to 52"x60" and you can even add on custom framing, matting, etc. or just have her as a poster! You can see her below and zoom in at all the details, etc.:

And the third new painting to show today is "The Sick Rose" - an adorable, delicately beautiful piece. This is another one of the paintings I did for my first gallery show - Alchemy Unleashed! The original painting itself sold there at the show, but luckily I scanned her in and have prints, etc. available. And no - people kept asking me at the show - this is NOT airbrushed. It is painted by hand, the old-fashioned way with a normal brush (which takes a lot longer, hehe). "The Sick Rose" is inspired by the 1794 William Blake poem of the same title (from one of his illuminated books, no stranger to Alchemy himself).

"O Rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy."

I however have interpreted with a slightly sweeter tone! My own original acrylic painting - the original was 16"x20" acrylic on panel. Again, the original painting itself sold at the gallery, but I have prints & posters available - All sizes from 11x14 ($13.90) all the way up to 52"x65" and you can even add on custom framing, matting, etc. or just have her as a poster! You can see her below and zoom in at all the details, etc...
