Art used on set of FOX's "Past Life"

EDIT AGAIN June 2010 - Looks like FOX has again canceled "Past Life". It was fun searching for the artwork for the shows that aired. We were able to see 3 of the 15 images. Although I don't have screenshots of all the images, I do have this one:

 Luau Girl can be seen in the lower right corner in Dr. Kate McGinn's kitchen. (Character played by Kelli Giddish)

(update 5/28/2010)"Past Life", based on the book "The Reincarnationist" by M.J. Rose, premiered Tuesday, February 9th on FOX after American Idol. At that time, a few episodes aired, but then were replaced with another show.  I noticed today that the series has returned to FOX on Fridays at  8/7c. So, I will continue to run the contest for viewers who are the first to spot one of my artworks on the show.

Here's a recap:
In July 2009, set decorator, Frank Galline, contacted me about using some of my artwork in the new series. I was thrilled with the opportunity and am excited to see how the pieces were used on the set.

My artwork was used in episodes that taped in Atlanta. They began airing in the second episode. Below are pictures of the images that were selected for the show. Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to see at least one of them visible on the set.

CONTEST: Do be sure to leave a message if you see one of the images on the set. The more eyes the better. If you are the first to post on my blog, twitter or Facebook account after having seen one of the images, and you let me know in which scene you saw it, I'll provide a free print of the image, or one of the viewer's choice. This will be done for all 15 images. So, you have 15 chances to win. Good luck and keep an eye on the art! :)

HINTS : (update 2/11: I heard from Frank. He gave us one hint: two of the images appear on Kate's Desk...one on each of her desks. He also mentioned that all 15 images were used in some way. :) )
(5/28/2010 : At least one image appears in 'Saint Sarah". Be the first to tell me which image and where it first appears and you win a print of the image.)

Keep an eye out for : Two Originals "Soft Glow" and "Singular Beauty: Burnt" (Prints available here)

Tiles of "The Pond", "Hello Sunshine", "Marked Horizon" and "Luau Girl" (tiles can be found here)

Prints of Heaven and Earth, April Showers Brings May Flowers, Perched on High, Bee a Good Citizen, Beautify Your Community, Welcome Back Spring, Waves and Stones, Shakti Energy Goddess, Water Below and Fibonacci's Sunflower. (Prints of these images are available)

I'm so excited for you Kristen. You work so hard at promoting and selling your art, and it is paying off! I don't have tv, so won't be able to see any of your art on the show, but I hope you are able to!

Thanks Julie! Some of the episodes might be available online after they air on TV. I'll let you know! I just got an email from the set designer and it looks like my art was used in episodes that will begin airing in Week 2...the ones filmed in Atlanta.

I am watching this show and it was pretty good. I thought I saw the painting soft glow in the scene where Corinne is talking to her sister on the phone where her sister says they are going to take her away.

Lua girl was a print that Kate had on her kitchen counter in the first scene.
