Hi everybody! LOTS of art news for today!

#1 Jasmine is coming to Italy! I am very pleased to announce that I will soon be coming to do an event in Milan, Italy! On May 25-26 in Milan, Italy I will be promoting a brand new book called "Molly & Jasmine" - a collaboration between famed cake artist Molly and myself! Featuring step-by-step photos of her cake creations (based on my paintings) as well as featuring over 90 step-by-step photos of my own painting technique, it's a really fun book. It is debuting in Milan at the Cake Design Festival Italy (click HERE for details) and I will be there May 25-26th). Be sure to check out Molly's Facebook HERE to see some of our collaborations and her beautiful work. The book will also be available to the rest of the world shortly thereafter, I'll be sure to let you know!

#2 Jasmine is coming to California! I am very pleased to announce that I will be coming to do an event in the Los Angeles area! On October 19th I will be doing a very special gallery show in the LA area. Mark your calendars now - I can't say too much about it at the moment but will be posting details soon!

An unfinished painting has been listed for auction, and the winning bidder will get to tell me how to finish painting her for them - choose the hair, eyecolour, skintone, theme, maybe some wings or jewelry, a tattoo or small pet - whatever we can fit in there - just for you!

Custom Painting Auction! & #25 Last Chance Lt. Ed. Canvas Auction for "The Scarecrow"
Custom Painting Auction! & #25 Last Chance Lt. Ed. Canvas Auction for "The Scarecrow"

Custom Painting Auction!
Custom Painting Auction!

CUSTOM PAINTING - "Faces of Faery 209"

6"x6" Original Acrylic on Panel

Auction is up & running NOW - CLICK HERE for details, photos, or to place a bid!

It is a CUSTOM painting auction! The winning bidder will receive the painting in the photos, but first they will get to tell me the following:

**Haircolour/Style (I can make it shorter, curly, add bangs, whatever you'd like)

**Eye Colour, Makeup

**Skintone, Freckles, Tattoos

**Wings if you'd like me to fit some in (note the size & placement of the face on the panel, it'd be a hint of them or very small ones)

**Perhaps a small pet!

**I could potentially add a bit of ornamentation like paint in a butterfly or flowers in her hair, earrings, leaves, something along those lines. Please do keep in mind the size/shape limitations of the 6" image as shown, as it is a 6"x6" square panel.

***This is for the actual painting shown in the auction, NOT intended to be a specific portrait of anybody please (her facial features & shape are obviously already painted!) or anything like that. However you can most certainly tell me your eye/skin/hair colour or send me a photo of you or a loved one and I can paint the fairy in the picture shown with those elements!

After the auction ends, I will email you and YOU will tell ME how to finish her! Once she's done, I email an image for your approval, and if all is good I then mail you the actual original painting via insured post.

The auction is on eBay (free & easy to sign up if you're not a member yet!), and bidding has been set at just one penny. It is a 10-day auction ending the evening of April 5th (TONIGHT!). The auction is up & running NOW:
