Finished! [May. 13th, 2003|08:47 pm]

I've finished up "Arcane Ritual Faerie #2" =)

It features the sister of the summoned faerie in the first piece, in a similar setting - with many, many diagrams, carvings, etc. I loved painting this piece!

Click here to see her!
I'm not sure if I'll get more painting in tonight - I've got a lot of email & web stuff to do. If I do start up again I'll move the camera back, hehe!

Wow. I love her outfit and her wings. That shade of red is so beautiful! I wish I could find her dress somewhere. I'd love to own something like that ^_~

I would too - maybe if it was in green though =) I like corsets and bodices and things that laceup!

Wow! I like this one better than the first but you know they are both great. That medallion in the corner looks like the Witches medallion I got on our trip to Salem. I lost it :( I wish I knew where that thing went!

I'm not sure which one I like better - I did like painting the medallion a lot though!

The next one I do is going to have a nifty hourglass (the old fashioned kind) in it =)

Thank you!!!

When I paint details like that I almost kind of space out and start painting before I think, lol. Sometimes I look down and think "Wow - I hardly remember painting that!" =)

Well, not to repeat all of the wonderful comments before me, but truly, this is REALLY amazing. The detail is absolutely splendid =) I'm going to bid on it RIGHT NOW!!!! Hehe- I'll probably be outbid but at least I can try...

Jasmine, how amazing does it make you feel to see that it's up to nearly $100 within 12 hours of listing it at a penny????????

Can you rub some of your good karma off on me? ; P

WOOOOOWWWZZZERS!!!!

Yay!!! It makes me feel damned happy =) I'm glad it works out that way though, whenever I have a piece that hovers around for a penny for a couple days (that doesn't happen as much any more) I get really nervous, lol.

One of my secret weapons is my "mailing list". Whenever anybody buys anything from me I ask them to join my mailing list. I also have a submission form on my website where people can join too. When I'm getting ready to post my auctions I send out an update with the URLs in it, with descriptions of the paintings, etc. My mailing list regulars usually make the first several bids (sometimes before the listings make it into the eBay search index!).

I feel very, very thankful everyday for all of my friends and fans =)
