Good morning! [May. 13th, 2005|06:24 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[music |Every Day is Exactly the Same - NIN]

Oh wait, it's like 6:30pm

Never mind. It's still a good morning! When you are me, the divisions of days/nights/weeks/seasons have little bearing how time really passes..... I work at home of course, paint endlessly and live in a climate where we have 80 degree winters, lol.

Besides - it doesn't matter what time it is - it's always Painting Time!

I got a ton of work done today! I finished up two custom paintings - woohoo! >^__^<

And now I'm starting a new BIG painting - (24"x18"? Something like that...)

It's going to be nature-y, outdoors, and full of hidden faeries. Or that's the plan at least!

At any rate, you can watch me HERE

I think it might be my favourite too - I can relate to that one the most, hehe. Either that or "Only" - I can't get enough of that one! It's been years since there has been an album I've enjoyed this much!

how many paintings you deliver a week?

Re: you do't stop

Lol! ::blush blush:: Thank you Priscilla!

Oh my, it really depends. I try to paint at least 10 hours a day. Sometimes I can do a few "mini" paintings that day, or one medium sized painting, or part of a large painting. So some weeks I might do 10 paintings, but some weeks I might only do 2 big paintings.

I'll bet it is difficult having two completely different artistic avenues - paint and music both!

Re: you do't stop

thanks very much :) glad you liked them
I've not been long a musician, decided to start out a songwriter's career at mid twenties, not the smartest choice XD, but I enjoy composing, and I cannot leave it now even if i've considered to do it a couple of times, i'm already addicted to it :(.

That sounds like such a fun life to not worry about sleep and day and night and climates! Just live!

In a way it is fun, but in another way I feel like time slips by me too fast, or that it moves to slow, lol. Kind of like it isolates me from the rest of the world (although, that's not necessarily bad...).

I wouldn't mind being isolated from the rest of the world :) I mean, I'm sure it has it's down and depressing moments like everything does, but overall it seems pretty nice!
