I will be at the Malpensa Airport Sheraton on both Saturday & Sunday (the 25th & 26th) at I Pasticci di Molly's booth - signing autographs to celebrate the launch of the new book - "Molly & Jasmine" at the Cake Design Festival! The new book will be there, and you can get it signed by us both =) Featuring detailed tutorials both of how I painting my paintings (complete steps from start to finish!) as well as step-by-step tutorials of how Molly creates her cakes & sugar paste sculptures based on my artwork. (Don't worry, it will also be available for the rest of the world soon, stay tuned!). For details about the festival Click HERE
#3 "Jeweled Fish: Silver and Gold" a NEW Original painting is up for auction on eBay! I ran out of time before the Spectrum show to finish this one (got swept up in some other paintings!), so she's going up on eBay instead =) It's been so long since I've done a penny-auction for a full-sized framed original painting - I figured I'd let everybody get a chance at her! Measuring 13x11" in a lovely oval frame, the first of a new series - bidding starts at just one penny, Click HERE to bid on the original "Jeweled Fish: Silver and Gold" And we'll be back from Europe in time to ship her out to you with no delay, so please feel free to bid with confidence! =)

Two New Original Paintings from Jasmine!
"Jeweled Fish: Silver and Gold"
Original is up for a "penny auction" on eBay HERE
Framed 13"x11" Original Acrylic painting on panel
A lot of my eBay regulars have been asking me to put up another penny auction for a full-sized original, so now here is your chance! Fish have always been one of my favourite things to paint, and I'm exploring this further with my new "Jeweled Fish" series featuring mermaids and fishies with ornate decorative elements (fancy fish!). This first piece, "Silver and Gold" shows goldfish decorated with ornate silver adornments - a striking contrast - with of course one of my liquid-eyed maidens. This is my own original acrylic painting. The original is FRAMED - in a delicate oval with an antiqued silvery finish - the frame measuring 13" high on the outside (10" interior) and 11" wide on the outside (8" interior). Originally I had intended this piece to debut at Spectrum, but since I didn't finish in time - the eBay crowd can get a chance at this one!
Click HERE to see (and bid on) the original painting herself!
Prints & posters will be available after I come back home from Europe. This auction will end right before I come back home, so feel free to bid as usual - there should be no delay in shipping =)

"Microcosm: Sea Monsters" is the fourth painting in my Microcosms series - delving into the theme of Alchemical microcosms - miniature life and worlds created in glass jars or beakers. This installment features a beautiful girl painted in a very classical style, based on my niece Eleanor - holding a raging sea filled with historically inspired sea monsters! (I love the old antique maps with sea monsters lurking in the outskirts). This painting debuted and sold at Spectrum Fantastic Art LIVE, but prints & posters are now available! My own original acrylic painting.
