Havenlight Art Tour

06 Nov, 2021 by in Uncategorized Leave a comment

I first saw Jenedy Paige’s painting “Coming Full Circle” in the temple. As this year has passed it has come to represent revelation for me. What it means to feel and recognize the presence of whisperings from heaven and angels. To feel the love of the Lord deep in our hearts and to receive answers for me personally. It is a beautiful rendering of peace and power poured out from on high. Thank you Havenlight Art and Jenedy Paige for this masterpiece.

Jenedy Paige Bio: 

I am a realist in every sense of the word. I paint things as they exist, in the representational tradition, but also in the concepts behind my work. I am a truth teller. I love the classical approach to painting and its ability to so easily invite the viewer in. However, I also know the value abstraction, and the power it has to express things that realism cannot, and so I try to include both in my paintings. There is nothing I love more than a delicate and detailed figure on an expressive background.

My paintings begin in a journal. I record my frustrations, sorrows, joys, ambitions, hopes and then I transform those words into images. I guess you could say I very literally draw from life experience. I try to be as honest as I can in the telling, I don’t mince words. I then release the story to the canvas, and as I paint I am enabled to process the experience in a new way and to learn from it. I’m not fast, I take my time with the painting, and the lesson in it. Layer by layer I work, carefully revealing the wisdom inside.

When it comes to creating images I believe that simplicity is key. The more concise you can say something, the more powerful it is. So although my writing is usually lengthy, I look for symbols I can use, and try to condense my thoughts into a concise visual statement. I strive to find a shortcut right to the heart of the viewer, something that will strike them at first glance.

When I have taken the painting as far as I can, I return to writing. And just when I think I have dissected a particular idea, when I have learned all I could, writing usually takes it one step further. Words then become the final layer to the piece. The work and the text are then offered up together to others. I then find my experiences are not all that original, as the work strikes a familiar cord in the viewer. People often place themselves inside my work, and add their story to mine, and thus my heart and the heart of my audience connect over the canvas.


Winners will be notified via email on December 1st. Learn more about Jenedy Paige & Dan Wilson here.

Fairy Tale Steampunk Bookmarks by RusticGoth

24 Feb, 2010 by in etsy, rustic goth, steampunk 41 comments

Today’s giveaway comes from the Rustic Goth Shop! She has given us two sets of three handmade bookmarks of original art. Here’s her bio “My dark and dreamy paintings and prints are rather sad and surreal in nature, at times a little whimsical and weird.

“Creating art is what I do…it is how I live… how I connect with the world that exists
outside of my studio…how I connect with my own feelings.

It is my hope that each work of art that I create, invoke a reaction, of some kind, in the
viewer….and a special connection with it’s owner.”

Steampunk Alice In Wonderland Signed Art

23 Feb, 2010 by in etsy, steampunk, strangeling 37 comments

Our giveaway today is for one of three signed prints from Etsy seller and artist Strangeling. Her work is unbelievable!

Here’s a little bit more about Jasmine: My name is Jasmine Becket-Griffith. (Aka Strangeling or mis-spelled as Jasmine Beckett-Griffith). I am 30 years old and I live in beautiful Celebration, Florida. I am a full-time artist and I make my living selling my artwork. I have been selling my original Fairy, Gothic, and Fantasy artwork online since 1997. You are purchasing this artwork directly from me, the artist. My original paintings are all acrylics on canvas or wood – all painted by hand, the old-fashioned way. All prints are made by myself & my husband Matty, here in our living room – and signed by me, the artist! I make all of my jewelry myself as well. I feel that it is important for me to sell my work directly to my fans, without the needless expenses or pretension of a gallery or middleman. I grow weary of the mundane world, and I am trying to slowly create my own through my fantasy artwork. I believe that with each piece of art I get out of my system, onto paper, and into your home I have done my part to make this place a more magical planet. You may know my work from countless books and lines of merchandise, especially through Hot Topic, Torrid, Target, SuperTarget, the Bradford Exchange, Hamilton Collection, etc. as well as my website ! Here is your chance to own the actual artwork. My work can be found in collections and galleries throughout the world, and am featured in the books “The Art of Faery” & “The World of Faery,” “Big Eye Art: Resurrected and Transformed,” “Spectrum” number 11, 13, and 15, “Gothic Art Now,” and others. Also be sure to check out my solo art book called “Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith,” “Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I” and my new book “Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume II” now available. When I’m not painting, I’m reading, spending time with my family, petting my cats (Mama Wolf and Tigrillo), playing outdoors, listening to music, or traveling. I enjoy traveling all over the world, whether it be for my art shows & conventions or just for fun and exploration! I love the ocean and spend a lot of time island hopping in the Caribbean, playing pirate. I also love visiting museums and historic sites throughout Europe. A lot of my travels end up as being sources of inspiration for my paintings!

Strangeling has donated Three Signed 8×10 Fine Art prints to us
