Unseelie Court: Famine by jasminetoad
Unseelie Court: Famine
The fourth painting in a my series called "The Unseelie Court" - specifically for the subset inspired by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - this is "Famine." Each painting in my Unseelie Court series depicts important individuals or families within the Unseelie Court. Exploring the darker side of the Fairy Court, the Unseelie faeries take their theming from unpleasant aspects of the magical and natural world. But of course despite being wicked they will have a beautiful and refinded elegance about them.... This particular painting in the series symbolizes "Famine". I tried to use a variety of historic magery from many cultures and centuries past - from the Dublin potato famine sculptures to the Egyptian hieroglyphs depicting famine in Saqqara, to medieval altarpieces. So many great references in this one, really speaks to the Art History nerd in me, loads going on. Her tattoo is the symbol of the balance scales, traditional associated with the apocalyptic personification of Famine. The original piece is sold, but prints, canvases & posters are available. Check out Strangeling.com to see the others in the series! Stay tuned for the Unseelie Court: Deadly Sins subset! This is my own original acrylic painting.

Counting Sheep by jasminetoad
Counting Sheep
Counting Sheep - a super cute painting for Wrong Gallery (in Taipei, Taiwan) for their "Year of the Sheep" show! This little sweetheart can't sleep (I know the feeling) but at least she's got some cute sheep to count. Acrylic painting on panel, prints & canvases are up at Strangeling.com . Original painting was on an oval panel, so these rectangular prints have a black background around the oval image.

Circus Chariot by jasminetoad
Circus Chariot
Circus Chariot - another very fun, whimsical painting in my "Chariots" series, with a dark circus theme.  A lovely silver haired maiden with a ringmaster feel with her little whip & tophat!  She's sitting in a Rococo chariot - flying over a misty landscape (with a distant circus train & tent) - with a Faberge inspired hot air balloon.  My own original acrylic painting.  This was a commissioned piece so the original painting is sold, but we have prints & canvases available now at Strangeling.com

Stilleven IX: Vissen by jasminetoad
Stilleven IX: Vissen
"Stilleven IX: Vissen" - the ninth in a series of works I have in my Stilleven series 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 "Vissen" means "Fish". A lot of beautiful flowers, fish, butterflies & fruit in - all popular elements included in famous Dutch still lifes. This is my own original acrylic painting, hand painted on panel, the original debuted and at the Stranger Factory "Peepshow" group show in Albuquerque, but we do have prints & canvases available now at Strangeling.com  My original acrylic painting.

Hi Jasmine! My mom is a huge fan of yours (many of her tatoos are your works), and her birthday is coming up. I was wondering if you could please maybe write her a birthday message, give her an autograph, or anything really. She's still recovering from surgery, and I wanted to make this birthday special. Anything would be awesome, really.
