New Owlyn Doll & Original Painting Auction

A very special auction - the winner gets my first cloth "Owlyn Doll" as well as the actual original painting I painted to create the design!

CLICK HERE to see the auction - bidding starts at just one penny!  (EDIT:  the previous email had the incorrect link for the auction, hehe - sorry about that!  Instead, this is the actual, correct link!) - CLICK HERE
This is an actual piece of "production art" - a behind the scenes look at how I create a lot of my merchandise - my actual hand-painted original acrylic painting on panel showing the different parts of my new "Owlyn" doll.  The winner gets the original painting as shown (it is on unframed .25" thick masonite, but would pop into a 16x20 frame easily).  The winner ALSO will receive one of the stuffed cloth Owlyn dolls (the new product line for which the original painting design was painted!).  A true collector's item!
11" Owlyn dolls will be available soon, they are the first in my series of art rag dolls and will be debuting at Dragon*Con 2013 and will also be available online soon both as finished dolls and DIY-kits for crafters.  More dolls will follow!

CLICK HERE to see the auction - many more photos & other details are on the auction listing.  The auction will end the evening of September 3rd at 6:00pm Central Time.  Stay tuned for details on how to buy the Owlyn dolls online within the next week or so!


Also now up for "penny auctions" are my new ACEO cards as shown above!  A wonderful way to start an art collection (or a great alternative for those of us without much wallspace) - I only make ONE single card for each painting.  They measure precisely 2.5"x3.5" (baseball card sized) and are tiny trading card sized pieces of artwork.  Printed on canvas and then hand embellished by myself with acrylic paints, signed & numbered "1/1" - meaning I only ever make ONE of each, ever, these are truly unique.  Many of these may be from paintings of mine you have never seen before!  Each auction starts at a penny and you can see all of them together by clicking HERE.  These auctions end tomorrow night (August 26th) so act fast!


I'm now getting ready for my two big September events - both start on Labor Day weekend.  Be sure to check out my Facebook throughout the upcoming weeks to see special sneak previews & works-in-progress for the pieces I'll debut at these shows.

Dragon*Con Art Show

August 30th - September 2nd: Hyatt Regency, Atlanta, GA
Located in the "Grand Hall WEST" room, my booth is in the far left hand corner along the back wall.  This is one of my biggest shows of the year!  If you would like to request my PDF file containing text descriptions, prices, purchasing details, etc. for my original paintings that will debut at the Dragon*Con Art show - you will need to email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with the subject line "DRAGON*CON ORIGINALS REQUEST".  I will then email you a file with all the details about the art show & what I'll be bringing!  I will attend the Dragon*Con Art Show in PERSON EVERY DAY for this event.   More Information Here

Kansas City Renaissance Festival

August 31st - October 13th, Weekends, Labor Day & Columbus Day: Bonner Springs, KS

The KC Renfest also begins Labor Day Weekend.  As I will be obviously at Dragon*Con in Atlanta this weekend, I will not be at the Renfest in person for the first weekend.  Amber & Chris (my sister & her husband who work as my assistants) will be there to open the show instead!  I will however be hurriedly driving to the event in time to make it for the second weekend.  I will be at the KC Renfest IN PERSON for the following weekends :

September 7th & 8th
September 14th & 15th
October 5th & 6th

My gallery will still be open all of the other weekends too, but it will be Amber & Chris running the show on those other weekends.  I will just be there in person on Sept. 7, 8, 14, 15 and Oct. 5 & 6 in case you want to say hi to me in person or want anything autographed, etc.   We have renovated the previous building that used to be Nene Thomas' house, in spot #251 - and it will now be a permanent fixture at the KC Renaissance Festival.
