"Arcimboldo Mermaid" NEW Original Painting and "Dragon d'Arc-En-Ciel" Original for Re-Sale

"Arcimboldo Mermaid"

44"x32" Framed Original Acrylic on Panel

$10,000 SOLD

Lt. Ed. Canvases $125 are HERE

Prints & posters available below

Probably my favourite mermaid so far! Also the largest and most complex I've painted so far too. The title is sort of an inside joke and refers to Giuseppe Arcimboldo - an Italian painter from about 500 years ago who painted a lot of "hidden picture" paintings. And obviously, there are a lot of hidden pictures in this painting - the mermaid's tail is made up completely out of sea creatures - sting rays, sand dollars, sharks, octopus, dolphins, abalone, seahorses, pearls, shells, oysters, lobsters, shrimps, eel, fish and loads more. The more you look at this the more you will see! I think this might have been the most fun I've ever had on a painting, and I plan on doing some similar hidden picture style pieces in the future. The original acrylic painting is SOLD, prints and Limited Edition canvases are available online (and large open edition canvases are also available at Downtown Disney's Pop Gallery at Walt Disney World). Details are below.

Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvases will be popping up soon in my Strangeling eBay store (or contact me directly at JasmineToad@aol.com - they are 11"x16", hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, are $125 and are numbered out of an edition of 25, they already come wrapped on boards & ready to hang):

New #01 Canvases up for auction!
It's time again for another batch of new #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas prints to go up for auction! Each is the FIRST in their edition, numbered #01 of 25. Lately I've been having Lt. Ed. Canvases sell out within a year or even sometimes a few months, so it's a great idea to grab one if you see one you like, because they are only around for a short while. Since collectors often prefer the #01 in an edition, I put these all up for auction. I hand embellish each one myself in acrylic paints, sign, date & number them #01/25. All of these are wrapped on boards, ready-to-hang, a hanger already on the back. That means when you open up your package in the mail you can immediately stick it up on your wall - no framing needed. Each is up for a penny auction below:

Please note: "Arcimboldo Mermaid" is being autolisted at 6:00PM Central time tonight so she may not be up there yet. Just check back later!

You can find other Limited Editions in my Strangeling eBay store HERE as well as my website (in the gallery section) HERE and giant Pop Gallery Exclusive Lt. Ed. Canvases on their website HERE (as well as in person at our gallery at Downtown Disney in Disney World)
