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!

Still got several hours of work to do on this one, but she is coming along nicely. The “Red” show will run from February 8-March 9 at Eight and Sand Gallery in Georgetown, Seattle. If you are interested in the original painting, contact the curator Alex at [email protected] – let her know you are interested in being on contact list for “Red Mask” by Jasmine Becket-Griffith.

From Jasmine:
“Stilleven V: Roemer” – the fifth 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 faeries & nymphs (of course!). A “Roemer” refers to the wineglasses with the raspberry shaped prunts on the stems that are often featured prominently in Dutch paintings. A lot of fun details in this one, all popular elements included in famous Dutch still lifes. This is my own original acrylic painting, the original painting herself is sold, but I have prints, posters & other merchandise available!

Limited Edition Canvas prints are available directly from me and are at Strangeling.com – 11×14″, $125, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of 25 ever made, wrapped on wooden boards & ready-to-hang.
