"Brother and Sister"

A work-in-progress

Work-in-progress - a piece debuting at my Miniature Marvels show at POP Gallery at Downtown Disney here in Florida, this is "Brother and Sister" - an illustration for the Grimm's fairytale of the same name, and depicts the little girl and her brother in the forest (her brother having been magically transformed into a deer). Another illustration for my upcoming Fairytales Oracle with Lucy Cavendish.

This original painting will debut December 20th at my Pop Gallery show (details about the event are here) - it is 8x10 original acrylic on panel, will be in an elaborate picture frame measuring 18.5x20.5" and will be priced at $2600.

Prints, canvases, etc. will be available after the show at Strangeling.com

Last Chance LE Canvases

Now SOLD OUT, the final #25/25 Lt. Ed. Canvases are up for auction - "Unseelie Court:  War" is here and "Faces of Faery 170" is here

Now sold out!

We have been selling a lot of Limited Editions this year, and two more have now been SOLD OUT. I only made 25 of each painting as a Limited Edition Canvas - and when they are gone, they really are gone.  Each Limited Edition is hand embellished by me personally in acrylic paints, signed, numbered, dated, and the canvases are wrapped on boards & ready to hang.  As per usual, when the first 24 are all gone, I always auction off the #25 editions on eBay, starting the bidding at just one penny, to give everybody one final chance in case they missed out!

Limited editions of Faces of Faery #170 (6x6") with the darling black kitty cat are now sold out.  The final #25/25 LE Canvas is up for auction here
Don't care if it's a limited edition and just love the picture?  We still have the glossy paper prints and the open edition 10x10 canvases of her here

Limited editions of Unseelie Court: War (11x14") have also now sold out.  Yes, that was very fast!  The final #25/25 LE Canvas is up for auction here
And again - if you don't care whether it's a limited edition and you just love the picture itself - we of course still have the glossy paper prints & the open edition 12x16 canvases of her here

PLEASE NOTE:  Many of my other limited editions are running very low in quantity and are in danger of selling out soon.  If you have a favourite, or have been procrastinating on buying one, you may want to snag one now before the big holiday rush (we will probably sell out of several over the holidays).  Most Limited Edition Canvases of mine can be found at http://www.strangeling.com (go to Shop - Fine Art Prints - and then on each image you will see the Lt. Ed. Canvas option, if available, on the dropdown box under Fine Art/Print Options).

Many other Limited Edition Canvases are available at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney here in Florida.  You can see a listing of Pop Gallery Exclusive Limited Editions here.  All of these are exclusive to Pop Gallery, they do ship worldwide - email popgallery@me.com - or call (407) 827-8200

The other Limited Edition Canvases I have are the ones featuring licensed Disney character art - these are available only from Disney - primarily through Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery as well as some selections at Disney World's Disney Marketplace Co-Op.  You can see these Disney Exclusives here Disney Exclusive Limited Editions are happy to ship worldwide too - you can email them at
merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com  or by telephone at: 877-560-6477.

"Verdigris"

Original Framed Pastel Painting for sale HERE

Prints from $9.99 & Lt. Ed. Canvases are HERE


Most of the time, I work in acrylic paints exclusively. Sometimes though I like to do pieces as PASTEL paintings! Meet "Verdigris" - a sweet big eyed fairy girl in delicate pastels. Don't you want to take her home? The original painting (on 8x10" masonite panel framed 12.5x14.5") is up for auction on eBay, bidding starts at just one penny here

I have also decided to offer her as prints on sale this week for $9.99 - 8x10" glossy prints signed on the back by me are at Strangeling.com here
and on eBay here

Limited Edition canvases, wrapped on boards, hanger on the back, ready-to-hang, hand embellished by me, signed & numbered front & back, are $100 each onStrangeling.com

"The Little Match Girl"

Original 8x10 Acrylic Painting $2400 SOLD

Prints from $9.99 & Lt. Ed. Canvases are here


"The Little Match Girl" is an illustration for my Fairytale Oracle deck (with author Lucy Cavendish) due out in 2015. A classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, one of the saddest children's stories of all time, if you ask me! This poor little thing is on her last match, shortly to die from the cold as the snow swirls around her. There is a message of hope here however, as she reunites with her beloved grandmother in heaven. This is an acrylic painting, I had a wonderful time with the many layers of paint - glazing it with a lot of water to create the beautiful lighting in this piece.  The original painting has been sold.

8x10" glossy prints (signed on the back by me) are $9.99 this week here
and on eBay here

8x10" limited edition hand embellished canvas prints - wrapped on boards & ready to hang, signed & numbered - only $100 - also at Strangeling.com here (just select the Canvas option under print options). You can also buy the canvases on eBay here

New ACEO Cards!

One of a kind, only one of each painting is ever made

bidding starts at just one penny each here

It's time for a new batch of ACEO cards!

I only ever make one ACEO card of each painting I do.  A tiny 2.5x3.5" trading-card-sized canvas print, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, numbered "#1 of 1" since I only make one!  A wonderful way to begin a collection, or to add to a collection once you've run out of wallspace.  I put each little canvas up on eBay for an auction starting at just one penny, to give everybody a chance.  Click HERE to see them all - bidding ends on Tuesday evening.

Two new Disney paintings of mine have been released -  "Evil Queen" and Haunted Mansion's "Tightrope Girl"  Mark your calendars - these images and my other WonderGround Disney work will be coming to Florida's Disney Marketplace Co-Op - and I will be there for a special event November 7&8th.

Speaking of the gallery in Seattle - I will be having a solo show called "Birds and Beasties" next October, 2015 -details are HERE.

"Evil Queen"

16"x20" Original Acrylics on Panel, $6400 SOLD at Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery


Available only through WonderGround Gallery at Disneyland (and soon to be also at Disney's Marketplace Co-Op here at Disney World in Florida), worldwide shipping.

Email merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com or call Merchandise Guest Services number at 877-560-6477 (option 2) or (714) 781-4565 – they open at 10:00am Pacific Time - they are happy to ship worldwide. Available as matted prints, limited edition framed signed canvases, mini framed canvases & postcards - ask the representative at the phone number above and they will let you know what is available! The original painting SOLD at the show.

Some enterprising Californians have already been buying & reselling my WonderGround prints & merchandise from Disneyland on eBay too - I have gathered them together in an online eBay collection of links here - all different sellers, prices, etc. but all together in one link here

This image will also be available soon in Florida at the Disney Marketplace Co-Op on the Marketplace side of Downtown Disney / Disney Springs here at the Walt Disney World Resort as well, so if you live in Florida you should have options to purchase in person soon too.  I will be there in person at the Co-Op the evenings of November 7 & 8 from 5pm-7pm.

One of the pieces I painted for Disney that debuted at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, CA. Licensed & contracted by Disney, ©Disney, this is my original acrylic painting featuring Disney’s Evil Queen from the animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my favorite Disney classics. When I was a kid, I remember my grandmother telling me that she saw it in the theatres when she was a little girl, which totally blew my mind! The Evil Queen is such an archetypal character; she helped define my notion of a true "villain." She is beautiful, vindictive, fabulous, but incredibly powerful - juxtaposing petty jealousy with supernatural thrill. One of the most unforgettable scenes has to be her consultation of the mystical servant in the Magic Mirror (who I find creepy even to this day). I have painted my interpretation of the Evil Queen in my usual stylized characterization, an acrylic painting capturing the mood & mystery of her conversation with the Magic Mirror.

Prints, merchandise and limited edition canvases are available exclusively through Disney.  More details are here.
*******

"Tightrope Girl"

12"x30" Original Acrylics on Panel, $7200 SOLD at Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery


Available only through WonderGround Gallery at Disneyland (and soon to be also at Disney's Marketplace Co-Op here at Disney World in Florida), worldwide shipping.

Email merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com or call Merchandise Guest Services number at 877-560-6477 (option 2) or (714) 781-4565 – they open at 10:00am Pacific Time - they are happy to ship worldwide. Available as matted prints, limited edition framed signed canvases, mini framed canvases & postcards - ask the representative at the phone number above and they will let you know what is available!

This image will also be available soon in Florida at the Disney Marketplace Co-Op on the Marketplace side of Downtown Disney / Disney Springs here at the Walt Disney World Resort as well, so if you live in Florida you should have options to purchase in person soon too.  I will be there in person at the Co-Op the evenings of November 7 & 8 from 5pm-7pm.

One of the pieces I painted for Disney that debuted at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, CA. Licensed & contracted by Disney, ©Disney, this is my original acrylic painting featuring Disney’s "Tightrope Girl". This piece is inspired by one of the most iconic scenes in one of my all-time favorite Disney attractions - The Haunted Mansion! The infamous room that houses the stretching portraits left a huge impression on me as a child - a true piece of Walt Disney Imagineering magic. The delightful creepiness of the character known as the "Tightrope Girl" speaks to me in particular, and as a Florida girl, I identify with the alligator-based narrative. In my interpretation I have painted her as a tall, narrow acrylic painting to keep the general aesthetic of the portrait in full "stretch." Keeping with the Southern Gothic feel of The Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square at the Disneyland® Resort, I have expanded the atmospheric background into an immersive Louisiana swamp, and of course the character herself has been given my personal treatment with the larger head / big eyes painted in the pop surrealist/Jasmine Becket-Griffith style.

Prints, merchandise and limited edition canvases are available exclusively through Disney.  More details are here.

[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ]

Updates from Jasmine!


Big update today!

Firstly a reminder - I will be at Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery TOMORROW in Anaheim, California - Downtown Disney - 11am until 1pm - FREE event (no tickets needed) - come on by - details HERE

Two new paintings - "Pastel Portrait 1" and "Octopus Pumpkin"

Another original painting - "Paisley" - is now available too!  The original collector did not come through, so I have put Paisley (framed, gorgeous) up in my eBay storeHERE

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival's LAST WEEKEND of the year is this weekend!  This Saturday, Sunday & Monday (Columbus Day) - if you buy $10 or more at our gallery, you can choose a FREE mini print.  I won't be there in person ('cos I'll be in Disneyland for my event there) but my sister Amber will be there, happy to help you out!

My "Autumn Tour" is in full swing!  I
am all over the world this month, (Disneyland in California, Disney World in Florida,  Whitby in the UK, Glastonbury in the UK, back to Florida again, a Mail-in-Show in Seattle,....).  To see all of my upcoming events, visit my Events Page Here .  Even though I'll be traveling, I'll be doing quite a bit of painting along the way - to keep up on my current works in progress, keep an eye out at my Facebook HERE or Instagram (My user ID is Strangeling).

"Octopus Pumpkin"

8x10" Original Acrylics on Panel, $2200 AVAILABLE, prints & canvases HERE


Octopus Pumpkin 8x10 Acrylic Painting on Panel - $2200 (framed she is about 10x13 -  silver oval frame) available at Eight And Sand Gallery's All Hallows show opening this Saturday in Seattle!

This original piece will be for sale there, if you are interested - contact the curator Alex at
eightandsand@gmail.com - they ship worldwide.

Prints & Canvases start at $9.99 here at strangeling.com

 This cutie has an octopus in a pumpkin, because I love them both!

Prefer eBay?   8x10 open edition glossy prints are $9.99 here  also signed on the back by me =)

Lt. Ed. Canvases are on eBay too, here

And of course prints are up at our Etsy store

*******

"Pastel Portrait 1"

5x7" Original PASTEL Painting on Masonite HERE

Something different from me...

Most of the time, I work in acrylic paints exclusively.  Sometimes though I like to do small portraits/study pieces as PASTEL paintings!  I figured collectors might be interested in these as well, so here is the first of my Pastel Portraits.  Bidding starts at just one penny HERE

These are Caran d'Ache pastels on a masonite panel treated with marble & pumice dust.

While this piece has been "fixed" with Degas Non-Toxic Spectrofix fixative, it is still suggested that all pastel paintings are kept behind GLASS/PLEXIGLASS.   Because of this, for display & for safety during  shipping I have included a simple metal & glass frame.  You can leave her framed like this and hang her on the wall or set her on a desk (it has a wall hanger & and an easel back on the backside).  Or since she's a 5x7" standard size board, you can always pick out your own frame later if you'd like to re-frame her yourself in the future, it is very easy, and the masonite boards are quite sturdy.   Please remember though to keep pastel paintings behind glass.  Again - bidding is HERE - if you guys like her, maybe I'll put more up soon!

Paisley ORIGINAL Painting

27x30" Framed - $4600 now AVAILABLE HERE


"Paisley" Original Framed Acrylic Painting is AVAILABLE HERE

The original collector did not come through with payment, so she is up in my eBay store - 30"x27" Framed (gorgeous frame)

Original out of your budget?  Prints & Canvases are up at Strangeling.com here

New Unseelie Court, Faces of Faery, Disney & Works-in-Progress from Jasmine [Oct. 7th, 2014|08:26 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , , , , ]

Updates from Jasmine!


Great stuff to show you & tell you about today!

Two new paintings - "Unseelie Court:  Death"  and "Faces of Faery 227"

My "Autumn Tour" is in full swing!  I am all over the world this month, (Disneyland in California, Disney World in Florida,  Whitby in the UK, Glastonbury in the UK, back to Florida again, a Mail-in-Show in Seattle,....).  To see all of my upcoming events, visit my Events Page Here .  Even though I'll be traveling, I'll be doing quite a bit of painting along the way - to keep up on my current works in progress, keep an eye out at my Facebook HERE or Instagram (My user ID is Strangeling).

I also have some new works-in-progress to tell you about, including a new Halloween painting & a pastel painting too!

"Unseelie Court:  Death"

16"x20" Original Acrylics on Panel, $5800 SOLD, prints & canvasesHERE


The third painting in my series called "The Unseelie Court" - specifically for the subset inspired by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - this is the piece I painted "live" as a demonstration at my gallery at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. Each painting in my Unseelie Court series depicts important individuals or families within the Unseelie Court. Exploring the darker side of the Fairy Court, the Unseelie faeries take their theming from slightly unpleasant aspects of the magical and natural world. But of course despite being wicked they will have a beautiful and refinded elegance about them.... This particular painting in the series symbolizes "Death". I tried to use a variety of death imagery from many cultures and centuries past - pre-Columbian Central American carvings, Egyptian Book of the Dead, medieval/renaissance Europe and beyond (her scythe has a distinctly contemporary video game feel...). So many great references in this one, really speaks to the Art History nerd in me (especially Saturn Eating His Children in her skirts, and the Burial at Ornans funeral). The original piece sold, but prints, canvases & posters are available. Stay tuned for Famine later, before I begin on the Unseelie Court: Deadly Sins subset!

The original painting of "Unseelie Court:  Death" has sold, but we have prints (signed by me on the back) starting at $9.99 as well as Limited Edition Canvas Prints hand embellished & numbered by me for only $125 at Strangeling.com HERE

Or if you prefer eBay, the $9.99 8x10 signed glossy prints are HERE and the $19.99 12x16 signed glossy prints are HERE


and 11x14 Lt. Ed. Canvases are HERE

And of course prints are up at our Etsy store


*******

We also have a set of ALL THREE Unseelie Court pieces in the series so far - only $30 for the set of 8x10s, $60 for the set of 12x16s, all signed on the back by meHERE

"Faces of Faery 227"

6"x6" Original Acrylic Painting SOLD, prints & canvases are HERE


The two-hundred-and-twenty-seventh installment (geez!) in my ever-popular-seemingly-immortal Faces of Faery series, here is Faces of Faery #227!   The original acrylic painting was sold, but we have prints (signed by me on the back) starting at $9.99 as well as Limited Edition Canvas Prints hand embellished & numbered by me for only $75 HERE

Or if you prefer eBay, the $9.99 6x6 signed glossy prints are HERE


and 6x6 Hand Embellished Lt. Ed. Canvases are HERE

And of course prints are up at our Etsy store

 There are over 200 paintings in my Faces of Faery series - Click HERE to see them all!

Works-in-Progress

I've got some works-in-progress!


Work-in-progress! An updated shot of the little Halloween piece I had started at the KC Renfest last weekend. She's destined to hang at Eight And Sand Gallery's All Hallows show opening this Saturday in Seattle! This original piece will be for sale there, priced at $2200, framed original acrylic on panel - if you are interested contact the curator Alex at eightandsand@gmail.com - let them know you are interested in Jasmine Becket-Griffith's original piece for All Hallows (and yes, she'll ship worldwide for those of you not in the Seattle area). This cutie has an octopus in a pumpkin, because I love them both!

**********


Yep, I said pastels - somebody asked me yesterday if I ever work in any other media than in acrylic paints, and actually yes - I've been doing some smaller study paintings in pastels! Here's one I'm getting close to being finished with, a 5x7 pastel painting on board, facial study. Since folks are curious about this sort of thing, I might post these from time to time!

Might even put them in frames & pop one or two up in my eBay store here soon, if you guys would like. Since my travelling schedule is so heavy this autumn I might be doing a lot more of these soon, as pastels travel better in (less spilling, messy) than traveling with all my paints, or trying to paint in the car or a hotel, etc. Other than practice/study pieces in pastels, the rest of my work (all the stuff you see online) is always acrylic painting, usually on board, wood or sometimes canvas. These are Caran d'Ache pastels on a masonite panel treated with marble & pumice dust.
