New Protection Wings and Fairy Baby [Jun. 12th, 2006|12:10 pm]
Wendy Kathleen's Art
I've just finished two new paintings from two different series. The first is part of my protection wings series www.protectionwings.com
It is the Protector from Eating Disorders. This one is the most personal of all for me because I suffered from both A. and B. for over 17 years. This was a very important piece for me to have a part of the collection. Please feel free to pass this image on to others you know that may be suffering from an eating disorder. I also will have up on the site later this week many different gifts and prints with this image on it.

The next painting is the last for the new Fairy Baby series www.threefairybabies.com that I am doing with two other BIG fairy artists. I am so excited about this new project with two artist that I admire artistically and love personally as good friends. This image is taken from a photo of me and Kaleb when he was only 2 days old. I wanted to a fairy mother and baby painting as part of the collection.

Hey everyone. I'm so excited to announce that I am now offering Italian charms and Cell Phone Wallpaper with my art on it! You can check them out at http://www.wendykathleenart.com/cpw.php and on my protection wings site http://www.protectionwings.com
Right now you can only get the charms at the protection site and the cell phone stuff on my normal site, but within two wings you can get them at both places.
I am also in the process of changing my main website, so I will keep you posted on when that will be done.
I also have in the works a new website called Three Fairy Babies http://www.threefairybabies.com
It is a really fun and special project that I am doing with fantasy/fairy artists Jessica Galbreth http://www.enchanted-art.com and Jacqueline Collen-Tarrolly http://www.toadstoolfarmart.com . You can't see our art on the site just yet, but you can read a little about what we are doing. Since we are all friends, are all fairy artists and all had our babies a month apart, we thought that it would be a great idea to do this little project. I will give you all a sneak peak at my fairy baby paintings.

Yes, the last one is based off of my cute and adorable son Kaleb. I did the last painting, "Moon Swing Faery" really big, which I haven't done in about 3 years. I use to always paint that big, but have since been painting at a size around 14 x 17. I think this one might have to stay with me and not be sold.

Maybe it's just being a new mother, but I have felt soooooooooooooo moved to paint images that are light, innocent and happy. This new line is the result.

I am also currently working on two new images for the Protection Wings site: Depression/Mental Illness and Eating Disorders.
I believe both of these are causes that are often overlooked or made jest of as not really a problem but a choice. I believe otherwise.

I have been informed that my breast cancer protection wings image is going to be used on shirts in NYC at a Marc Bolan/T.Rex tribute concert on June 1st at Don Hill's in Manhattan. All the musicians (Performers are to include Skid Row , Rolan Bolan , Frankenstein 3000 (the frontman of which is a Sirius satellite radio personality and will use his show to help promote the gig), and two British T.Rex tribute bands (Rarn and Jeepster). are performing without compensation, and the proceeds are being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I wish I lived close enough to go. It is going to be a great event, so if you are in the area.....GO and then tell me what a great time you had.

Hugs and Blessings to you all.

Wendy Kathleen's Art
It's finally up and running: My charity Protection Wings site http://www.protectionwings.com
Please share this site with all of your friends and families. I have been so touched by all the stories and responses that I have gotten from this series. I love getting your emails and hearing your stories. I"m also continually looking to add new images to this series. I have just finished a new painting for the Protection Wings series for SIDS. This painting is taken from a photo of me and my new son Kaleb. I am dedicating this painting to ALL MOTHERS, for I believe it is one, if not thee biggest fear of Mothers all over the world.

New Year Ahead [Jan. 10th, 2006|02:44 pm]
Wendy Kathleen's Art
Hi everyone-

Sorry it has been forever and a day since I last updated you all. I ended up giving birth to my son Kaleb on Oct. 23, 2005 by emergency c-section after going 2 weeks past my due date. Since then I have been wrapped up in the joys of first time motherhood and then the holiday obligations.
I haven't neglected my art completely in this time. I have been busy at work creating a new web site, Protection Wings (which will be up and running within the month), that will be featuring my charity art pieces. I'm really excited about this venture and hope that it will be a success in helping raise awareness and money for the various causes.
I am also excited to announce that the book Fairy Motifs, which features my art work, is now available at Hot Topic http://www.hottopic.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&ITEM=263583&RN=558
as well as through Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1843403021/qid=1136932773/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-3324643-9467906?n=507846&s=books&v=glance or your local bookstore. I got such a tickle out of seeing my work in Hot Topic. Below is a picture I snapped of myself with it in the store.

I have just finished a painting of the Protection Fairy against Leukemia, which is the newest in my Protection Charity Series. If you haven't seen my other Charity Faerie/Angels you can view them at
http://www.wendykathleenart.com/protection.php
The idea behind this one, since I couldn't find a symbol for the disease her wand of light is like a beacon that is shinning healing onto those with leukemia.
This painting is based on Aimee Butler, who has fought two rounds with Leukemia. You can read more about her and her amazing fight at http://www.fairiesworld.com/fairytale.shtml

I am starting a series of fairies/angels for diseases called the Protection Angels and Faeries. I plan to contact the different organizations and offer them all the profits that I make and to see if they would like to use them also. I just felt I needed to give back a little because I've been given so much lately. They should be on my website within the week.

Each one so far is inspired by someone I know who has or has recovered from the disease. It's starting very personal and I hope it will grow.

The first one is for Breast Cancer

The second one is for Heart Disease, which my dad suffers from.

The last one is for Childhood Diabeties and is taken from a photo I took of my neighbor who has this. The scan came out terrible on this one, so please forgive the lack of color, because in real life it's very vibrant. I'm planning on adding a bracelet to the little girls arm, like the medical one she wears.

I've just added a new section to my website called the Painting Tutorial. In it, I walk you through my painting process for a little fairy girl, step by step, explaining different painting techniques and also what paint, paper and brushes I use. I'm hoping it will be a valuable resource for other artists and fun for others to see the painting process. Check it out at http://www.wendykathleenart.com/tutorial.php
