The Art of Misty* Benson


LAST CALL! Sunday is last day to buy open edition prints before my eBay & Etsy Stores are closed.

LAST CALL! Sunday will be the last day to buy from my eBay or Etsy Stores before they are closed. I am retiring open edition prints (photo prints) as well as some images altogether. So if there is something you have your eye on, I recommend getting it now.

EBAY: http://stores.ebay.com/MorbidlyAdorableCreations
ETSY: https://www.etsy.com/shop/gossamerfaery

Some of you have not taken the retirement of the open edition prints lightly and have snapped them up. I appreciate that! You are getting the last of the bunch! All orders except stretched canvases have shipped. (Stretched canvases take more time to paint and prepare:)

After Sunday, all sales will be through my website. The focus will be on originals, limited edition canvases, special editions, and timed sales (i.e. a print will be offered for 24-48 hrs before its gone.) If you want to be the first to know about new art, special editions, and much more, hop on over to my website and join my Mailing List! ♥

EBAY and ETSY STORES CLOSING this week! Last chance for most open edition prints!‏‏
Lucky Cat Skellies

After nine dedicated years of selling on eBay, and selling on Etsy here and there for 6 years, I'll be closing both stores over the next week. I will still have my website http://www.mistybenson.com, but I will be retiring a great deal of art from there as well. If there is something you have your eye on, I recommend getting it now. I do not know what I will be keeping on my website after next week. The Morbidly Adorables have been begging for change for awhile, and it's time I listened:)

EBAY: http://stores.ebay.com/MorbidlyAdorableCreations
ETSY: https://www.etsy.com/shop/gossamerfaery



I know a lot of people will be wondering why. Due to significant changes in my life, I will have far less time to work on my art. So with the time I have, my primary focus will be fulfilling my contract to U.S. Games and finishing the tarot deck as soon as possible. I'll be focusing my energy more on original paintings, limited and timed releases, and my own website. eBay in particular takes a lot of focus, the rules are always changing, the fees have gone up while the traffic auction views have gone down. It is no longer a good fit for my art. I think it's time to represent my art exclusively through my website. I need to spend more time building my website and directing people there:) And no, I can't say what will be retired, but pretty much all open edition prints will be going. 5"x7", 8.5"x11", and 13"x19" prints will all likely be retired. I'll be focusing on selling originals, and then a handful of those will be available as limited edition prints.

From now on when I release new paintings, I'll be offering them first to my mailing list, then I will be putting them on my website for the public to purchase. I will still update Facebook and keep blogging on my journal, but my Mailing List will be the first to know about new stuff, get special offers, etc.

If you would like to receive an e-mail update when I post new artwork, update my blog, and get exclusive offers, please join my mailing list!

Thank you for all the years of support through eBay and Etsy! Like I said, I'll still be doing art, it's just time to focus on my website. I hope you'll continue to keep up with me in other ways! I will keep you updated on any other changes. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you!

If you want to own the original drawing, I list them on eBay as they are finished. To see what is still available, either click the image of the DLD in which you are interested and go straight to the eBay listing, or go to the "Sketches" section in my eBay Store to see which ones are still available. Since I release new ones so frequently, I don't want to put fill up your inbox every time I release a DLD.

New Tarot Card - Five of Stars!
Morbidly Adorable Tarot Fool
gossamerfaery
Happy Tuesday!

In true Tarot Tuesday style, I have a new tarot painting to share! The Five of Stars or Pentacles! Since the star is my favorite shape, the suit may just be stars instead of pentacles. Plus, they might not all have circles around them. In this scene, the sweet nurse doctors the ailing onions! For the complete write-up on the card, please visit one of the links below!

Custom Artwork - Paintings, Sculptures, Cake Toppers, Munny Dolls, etc.
Octo-Munny Detail
gossamerfaery
This is a custom painting I did of Rhett, a barrel racing horse who passed away a few years ago. I actually watched Rhett race once, so this was particularly special for me! I Skelly-ized him! I do a large number of pet tribute pieces not to mention I frequently do portraits and/or Skelly-ize the living! If you have questions about a commission (painting, sculpture, cake toppers, Munny Dolls, etc.), please see my commission page for details or e-mail me directly at gossamerfaery@hotmail.com

Saint Jude Painting
See How They Glow Bugs Gig
gossamerfaery
My absolute, favorite new painting of mine, "Saint Jude." Obviously, this is not your grandmother's Saint! Saint Jude is the "Miraculous Saint." He is the Saint of "lost causes" and "cases despaired of."

Merry Christmas from your friends at Morbidly Adorable!
&quot;Skelly Cane&quot;

I know it's been said many times, many ways...Merry Christmas! In my case, it's been painted many times, many ways! I hope your day is filled with cheer, food, and a little mischief! I want to thank each and every one of you for accompanying me on this journey through 2012! You survived the end of the world! You deserve an even more incredible 2013!

Merry Christmas from your bony friends!


The Skellies don't know much about Christmas, but they'll give it a shot!


12 Days of Christmas!


In 12 days you get one big eye beauty, one bony bovine, 23 fowl, and 51 Skellies that will entertain you year round! From my Dark Little Dearies Comic Series, it's the 12 Days of Christmas! What else? It's also great year round since these characters seem to be doing their own thing! Skelly maids a milking?! What do they get -- powdered milk? Not the prettiest maids in town! Four calling birds?! Who are they calling on their cells? Swans having a pool party... French hens painting goose eggs... It's the most UNimaginable scene packed edge to edge with Dark Little Dearies goodness!

XOXO!!
