Firstly - this Saturday evening - November 21st from 4-7pm at Disney's Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs (Downtown Disney here in Florida) - hope to see some of you local folks there!  Details about the event are here.  I definitely recommend coming a bit early, because as it approaches 7pm the Disney officials will literally cut the line off, so the sooner the better ;)

Next up - great news - I got my advance author copies of my colouring book and they are gorgeous.  In fact, I am GIVING AWAY THREE COLORING BOOKS this Friday evening up at Patreon.  All you need to do is be signed up at Patreon by 8pm EST on this Friday November 20th.  Patreon isn't free, but it only costs $1 for the first tier of subscription, and you will automatically be entered.  Just click the "Become a Patron" orange button on my Patreon page HERE.  You'll be entered for all my giveaways, including the monthly original painting giveaway, figurines, calendars, and of course be the first to get a colouring book if you win.  Just want to BUY a colouring book instead?  Scroll down in this update for details.

I have a brand new original painting to show you - an Alice / Van Gogh painting that will be appearing in my upcoming Alice in Wonderland Oracle Deck.  She is called "Alice in a Van Gogh Nocturne" - the original painting has sold, but you can get prints and canvases HERE - on sale this week!

And in other news - I've started in on my "Four Seasons" series of paintings that will debut on December 12th at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs (Downtown Disney West Side) here in Florida.  I've just posted a work-in-progress of "Winter" - the first of the paintings - be sure to scroll down through the update to see her so far!

"Alice in a Van Gogh Nocturne"
11x14" Original Acrylic Painting on Panel $4200 SOLD
Prints and Canvases from $9.99 HERE

"Alice in a Van Gogh Nocturne" 11x14" Original Acrylic Painting $4200 SOLD - prints & canvases from $9.99 are available worldwide here.

Part of my very exciting and in-depth "Alice in Other Lands" series that combines Alice in Wonderland with Art History! Author Lucy Cavendish and I are starting work on my upcoming "Alice in Wonderland Oracle" deck with Blue Angel Publishing. They wanted to include my previous Van Gogh/Alice piece (Alice in the Starry Night) as a card illustration. Unfortunately, since that one was a wiiiiiide narrow horizontal rectangle, no matter how we cropped it or tried to re-size it, it simply wouldn't fit into the vertical standard rectangle shape format for an oracle card. So instead, I've created this new piece - "Alice in a Van Gogh Nocturne" (this time referencing several elements from various Nocturne pieces, including Starry Night) that will appear in the card deck. Also a bit of Bouguereau in there, as I thought the chair reminded me of Van Gogh's own. I've also given her a palette & paintbrushes, in homage. The original acrylic painting has sold, but we do have prints & canvases available now at Strangeling.com -

We have several types of prints. Firstly we have the open edition glossy paper prints signed by me on the back - 8x10" is on sale this week for only $9.99, and the 12x16" size is on sale for $19.99. We also have the open edition remarqued canvas prints - wrapped on boards & ready to hang - 12x16" with a signed COA for $125. And then finally we have the Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases for $595 - those are 16x20", hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, deep gallery-style wrapping on the sides, numbered in an edition of only FIVE ever made.

All are available here we ship worldwide, using the Fine Art Print Options dropdown menu.

EDIT: PLEASE NOTE - the Masterpiece Limited Editions have now sold out.  The #1 in the edition is up for auction here, and the final #5 will be up for auction soon.

Also on eBay here (including the #1 Masterpiece Canvas up for auction!)

And in our Etsy store here

Be sure to check out my website for all the other Alices in the series, and stay tuned for the Alice in Wonderland Oracle being published by Blue Angel. I will be doing many more new Alice pieces over the next few months to illustrate the deck!

Remember - if you would like to save an additional 10% on your Strangeling.com orders from now on (on all prints & all canvases, including sale items for additional savings) you can join the 10+ level at my Patreon here and get a permanent discount. Click here for details or to sign up.  You'd save almost $60 immediately just for one Masterpiece Edition for example, so if you buy even one it is worth it.

The Four Seasons:  Winter
Details about the Four Seasons event are here

Here's the first work-in-progress shot for my upcoming show at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs here in Florida on December 12th debuting "The Four Seasons". This one of course, is "Winter"! A delicately beautiful fairy with some winter wolves. The background is snowy, a castle in the distance. She will be cradling some subtly lovely flower blooms, the cold air making her cheeks pink! Her elegant wings will have snowflake details.

Each of the four paintings for this event will be representative of one of the four seasons. Designed in harmony either as a set of four or hung individually, each will feature a fairy iconic of her season, with various animal friends. Bright butterflies will tie the four together as well. As with all the Four Seasons, "Winter" is a 16"x20" acrylic painting on panel, will come in an ornate frame (the four pieces will be in matching frames), and will be priced at $6400.

If you are interested in the original painting, or in one of the Limited Editions (those will be exclusive to Pop Gallery as well, 16x20" in size too, priced at $595) - please contact Pop Gallery - popgallery@me.com or call them at 407-827-8200 and let them know. They will be taking down collectors' names for the VIP contact list.

Open edition paper prints will be available at Strangeling.com after the December 12 event, available worldwide, starting at just $9.99.

Details about the December 12th event (at Downtown Disney/Disney Springs here in Florida, from 6-9pm) are here - we'll also be debuting the new Coloring Book there too, don't miss it!
