Big update! New Stilleven & Tableaux, Custom Paintings, Tarot Project & Open Edition Canvases


New Stuff – big update today!


So much new stuff to show you today!
I have two brand new paintings (from my Stilleven and Tableaux Vivants series), a new Custom Painting opportunity up for sale, a work-in-progress sneak peek for another custom painting, yet another exciting Tarot project, and possibly the BEST news of all – we have now introduced  Open Edition Canvases to strangeling.com for all of the sold out canvases.  That means if you missed out on the Limited Editions, you can now buy an open edition of all your favourites, with a signed COA.  Be sure to scroll down to see all the new stuff!

“Stilleven VII:  Bloesem”

10×12 Original Painting $3300 SOLD Prints & Canvases are HERE


“Stilleven VII: Bloesem” is the seventh in a series of works I have planned that feature “deconstructed” elements of still lifes inspired by the Dutch master painters of the 1500-1600s, along with lovely girls, faeries & nymphs (of course!). Stilleven is Dutch for “Still Life” and “Bloesem” means “blossom”. A lot of beautiful flowers in this one (tulips, irises), some grapes, and a skull for vanitas – all popular elements included in famous Dutch still lifes. This is my own original acrylic painting, hand painted on panel. Original painting has sold, but we have prints & canvases available! You can choose between large or small signed glossy paper prints ($9.99-$19.99 on sale this week) or the 11″x13″ Hand Embellished Limited Edition Canvas Prints (ready-to-hang!) for $125 – using the drop-down box under the Fine Art Prints options here: Prints & Canvases</p>We are happy to ship worldwide!

Prefer eBay? The small signed prints are here and the larger ones are here.
& also up at my Etsy store here The Limited Edtiion Canvases are also up in my own eBay store right HERE

Be sure to check out my entire series of “Stilleven” paintings – there are seven so far, and you can see them here.

“Tableaux Vivants II: Roger & Angelica”

12×16″ Original Painting $4500 SOLD , Prints & Canvases are HERE


The second in my “Tableaux Vivants” series (living pictures) – a surreal incorporation of my traditional female figurative portraits along with tiny magical scenes from historic or mythological imagery seemingly come to life. This painting is inspired by the 1819 Ingres painting of the knight Roger saving the princess Angelica from the sea monster (just saw it at the Louvre) with a rococo portrait – might be one of my favourites so far. The original has been sold, but the next best thing – the Limited Edition Canvas prints are now available for $125 each, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of 25, wrapped on boards & ready-to-hang, 11×14″. These canvases can be purchased at Strangeling.com here (just select the Lt. Ed. Canvas option under the Fine Art Prints dropdown box).  Also on this page you can purchase the 8×10″ and 12×16″ glossy paper prints (signed by me on the back) – HERE</p>Prefer eBay?  The Lt. Ed. Canvas Prints are HERE

And also on eBay, the glossy paper prints are signed on the back by me:
8x10s are HERE and 12x16s are HERE

Want the set of both Tableaux Vivants together?


The set of BOTH Tableaux Vivants signed prints together are up as a sale set on eBay, too – the 8×10 set for $20 here andand the 12×16 set for $40 here

Your own CUSTOM painting!

6″x6″ Original $1600 – Faces of Faery – you tell me how to finish her!

These are always such fun!  Basically an unfinished painting from my Faces of Faery series. Whomever purchases her will get to tell me how to finish her – what colour hair/skin/eyes, theme, background, wings/jewelry/tattoos – maybe a small pet – whatever we can fit into the 6×6″ original painting. Details are in the eBay listing HERE

Here is a sneak peek of the previous Custom Painting that I’m working on right now!  The winner of this one decided she wanted an Elvish girl with a baby dragon, she’s coming along nicely:

And here are the results of some of my previous “Custom” Faces of Faery:

Open Edition Canvases now online!

For the first time ever, Open Edition Canvases are now online HERE


Did you miss out on your favourite painting as a Lt. Ed. Canvas? Good news! We now have the OPEN edition canvases (with a signed COA) up at Strangeling.com HERE .
They have been added up there for ALL of the Limited Editions that have sold out. These are like the ones we have at the Renaissance Festival, art shows, etc. – on the deep stretcher bars, 12″x16″ (or 8×10 or 10×10 depending on the painting), they are remarqued with my initials on the front and come with a signed certificate of authenticity, truly the next best thing to the Limited Editions.

These are only available online once all the Limited Editions are sold, and are priced at $125 (or $95 for those that are 8×10 or 10×10). Yes, we ship worldwide. We will continue to add Open Edition Canvases as more Limited Editions continue to sell out. These are not numbered, not hand embellished, not limited in edition, but they are quite nice and come with the signed COA, so they are definitely the next best thing if you missed out on the original or the limited editions.

The Open Edition Remarqued Canvas option is on the Dropdown box on each image at the link HERE

Work in progress, trilobites

trilobitewip2014

Work-in-progress! This painting features one of my favourite creatures – trilobites! I collect their fossils, and enjoy painting pictures of them. This beauty loves them too – this painting is for another oracle deck project, this deck is all water-themed, being written by my two sisters Kachina Glenn and Amber Logan & being published by Blue Angel Publishing. This piece is definitely coming along nicely, but many hours still to go – I’ve only roughly painted in the trilobites and still have a lot of work to do on her hair & face – If you are interested in the original painting, contact me at [email protected] – I am taking names for the “first dibs” list for direct sale from me, the artist. This original painting is acrylics on an 16×8, panel, will come gallery cradled – 2″ deep wooden sided masonite panel, and will be priced at around the $3300 mark depending on how long it takes me to finish. Collector inquiries will be given preference based on chronological order of contact, please put the words “Original Painting Inquiry” in your subject line so we are sure to see it!

Work-in-progress – Snow White and Rose Red

snowwhiteandrosered2014WIP

Work-in-progress! This painting – “Snow White and Rose Red” is for my long-awaited Fairytale Oracle deck project with Lucy Cavendish & Blue Angel Publishing. As Snow White and Rose Red is about two peasant girls, this is intentionally a nod to William Bouguereau, 1800s French painter who is the master of peasant-girl paintings, hehe. These two sisters are shown early in the story (not to be confused with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – a completely unrelated story of a character with a similarly translated name, ahem), Snow White will have light clothing and hair, Rose Red will have darker, redder colours, and this will correspond with their two forest friends – a cardinal bird and a chickadee! Still many, many hours of work left.
If you are interested in the original painting, contact me at [email protected] – I am taking names for the “first dibs” list for direct sale from me, the artist. This original painting is acrylics on a 16×20, panel, will come in a nice woodsy frame, and will be priced at around the $6000 mark depending on how long it takes me to finish. Collector inquiries will be given preference based on chronological order of contact, please put the words “Original Painting Inquiry” in your subject line so we are sure to see it!
