November Art Summery & Update! Paintings, Shows, Gift Certificates!

Its been a crazy busy uber productive month, which is EXACTLY how I like it!

“Lifes A Bitch Now So Am I” Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman from Tim Burtons 1992 film Batman Returns. Too much fun to paint! She is so striking and there truly is no better inspiration. 

The original 8x10 acrylic painting is for sale in my Etsy shop! If you don’t have/want an Etsy account or would prefer a private sale please message me at

“Mr & Ms Claws” in Iconic Portrait #17 I love these characters! Normally with my Iconic Portraits I choose a famous picture that I feel epitomizes the essence of the person/character. I this case I was not able to find such a photo so I had to create my own using several different references. It put a nice challenge on my usual process!

 The original debuted at my first Christmas show of the season and sold very quickly but I do have prints available! Professionally printed (tho shipped direct from me to you) 8x10s can be purchased here 4x6, 5x7 and ACEO prints are available upon request =)

My first Yule show of the season was the Light up Okotoks Bazaar. It was my fourth year at this event and it gets better every time! So many wonderfully supportive people ♥ Thanks a million to everyone who came out!

Ive been in a really wintery mood so this piece came quite naturally "Forever Frost". I was listening to Yule music throughout most of the process, On Midwinters Day by Damh The Bard, All Alone On Christmas, Baby Its Cold Outside, My Only Wish, All I Want For Christmas Is You… to name a few of my favs =)

The original ready to hang 8x10 acrylic painting is currently listed in my Etsy shop! For more details, check out the listing!

Gift Certificates! Good towards anything MAGISTERIAN! 

Everything in my Etsy shop, eBay, live exhibits and even commission works! Perfect for holiday gifts & stocking stuffers, birthdays, house warming etc. I have listed the more common denominations ($10, $25, $50, $100) but these can be purchased at any value you would like =)

I did my first Distinctly Nanton Christmas Market this month and it was an amazing show aswell! Nanton is such an eclectic community and I really felt at home. I will definitely be back next year!

Ive been feeling so festive all month, Im afraid Ill be sick of yuletide cheer by the time the holidays roll around! I decided to do something a bit different, not a single eye in the whole painting! “Yule Rouge” 

The original sold very quickly but I do have prints available =)

Custom paintings for Christmas, great gift idea! 

Original 5x7 portraits start at just $35, give a truly personal one of a kind gift!

And finally my last painting of the month...Iconic Portrait #18 Edgar Allan Poe in “Quoth The Poe It” 

The original ready to hang 5x7 acrylic painting is currently listed in my Etsy shop! For more details or purchase info please visit the listing.

Upcoming Events:

I am very excited to be participating in this for the 5th year in a row! I will be at the Highwood Memorial Center in High River, Alberta on Friday and Saturday (December 7th & 8th) with a bunch of my original paintings (both framed & unframed), a variety of prints (both framed & unframed) and gift certificates. This is my last show of the year so come out, say hi, and enjoy what is sure to be another amazing parade & celebration!

Happy Holidays!
