Weekly Wrap-Up #12!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic week. I was busy working on two different paintings this week. My Valentine's mermaid painting, Vienna, is all finished and in time for Valentine's Day...imagine that! And I've also been working on Heather, which is the piece I'm creating for the person who one my Christmas giveaway. She is almost complete, so hopefully I will have final pictures to show you all soon! The original of Heather will of course be going to the person who won the giveaway, but she will be available on all my different products and will also be submitted to my various licensing companies for rubber stamps, cross stitch charts, tubes, etc... so stay tuned for that!

Portrait of a Mermaid #1 - Vienna - Valentine's Day Mermaid

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! I love to paint holiday themed pieces and Valentine's Day is always so fun with the pretty pink colors and cute hearts. So to celebrate Valentine's Day this year, I decided to paint a Valentine-themed mermaid. I didn't initially start out painting her to be part of my portrait series, but while I was working on her, I thought that she would fit in absolutely perfectly with my first four in the series: Arden, Telsa, Cassandra and Astrina. Vienna is my first mermaid in the series which is why she's titled Portrait of a Mermaid #1. There will of course be many more in the series!

Vienna is a beautiful Valentine's Day mermaid painted in lovely shades of brown and pink. Her outfit and tail are adorned with cute little hearts. There are also heart bubbles all around her! Vienna was so fun to paint.

She measures 8x10" and the original is up for sale on Etsy for only $150!!

I also have released Vienna in my entire product line! If you can't afford the original, but would like to add Vienna to your collection, please consider purchasing one of my other products! Vienna is available on ACEO, 5x7 and 8x10 prints, stickers, magnets, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, buttons and printable coloring pages.

In other news, Creative Design Outlet has released two new tube packs featuring six of my images! These tubes can be used to creative lovely digital creations like signatures, tags and e-cards for friends. You can also use them to create Facebook and Myspace profile pictures.

The first new pack includes Astrina, Krista and Valencia. Astrina is Portrait of a Heroine #1 and is a magician. She's done in beautiful shades of purple. Krista is a fun Halloween mermaid with an adorable kitty friend. And Valencia is a gothic mermaid painted in front of stunning gothic ruins.

The second new pack includes two of my newest and most favorite paintings, Tracey and Angelique. And it also includes a cute little Valentine's Witch, Ryla. Tracey is a gorgeous fairy all done in shades of purple and also features three winged kitty friends. Angelique is a vampire fairy set in a spooky cemetery.

Keep in mind you can buy these tubes in sets of three, individually or in a combo pack featuring all my images at a reduced price

Well that's it for this week! Next week, I'm going to work on finishing up Heather. I also have another commission that needs some tweaks with the sketch before I move onto the painting stage. And then, I also have plans to start a third painting of my own choosing! I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to paint yet, but I'm sure it will be something fun and I'll show you all as soon as I have sketch done. I hope you all have a fantastic week!
