'Afternoon everyone! [May. 18th, 2005|01:31 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We picked up Matt's mom at the airport yesterday! She's going to be here for about a week, going to the themeparks, seeing the sights =)

I've been working on a custom painting today, finishing it off, and now I'm getting ready to start a new piece! It's going to have lightning in it, inspired by our next week's weather forecast, lol. Thunderstorms every day!

I just made a smoothie out of mangoes & pineapples & bananas - it is so good! I like making meals I can "drink" while I'm painting, lol.

Anyways, you can peek in on me HERE!

I don't eat very well but I don't gain a lot of weight I think it's mostly because I subsist on liquids while painting and other things lol Three cheers for drinkable meals :D

Lol - same here - I drink stuff a lot more than I eat stuff, mostly because I try to combine it with my painting, hehe!

Oooooooooh that smoothie sounds yummie! My grandma likes to make me smoothies like that for breakfast when I stay with her. I need a blender. :)

Oh! You reminded me I needed to check the weather for my area for this weekend! LOL!

I was looking at your atlantis piece today and thinking of how I LOVED the stormy background it had! I can't wait to see how this piece developes!

That's my ultimate fantasy that I can simply drink all my meals! I bet I'd eat healthier =) Your smoothie made my mouth water!

I love thunderstorms, especially the bit after the loud part where its so silent and everything stops and kind of hangs in the air until the next roll of thunder.
Lol sorry about that, kind of went off into my own little world then!
Anyway, have a great time with Matt's mum!

Re: smoothies yum

I like blueberries in smoothies too - I wish they weren't so expensive! Maybe I should plant a blueberry bush!

Awww, that's a pity. Damn weathermen promising you paradise and giving you nothing, hihi.
Thunderstorms can be so cool. Only not when you are sitting in a tent, very high somewhere in the French Alpes, next to the only tree in the area, lol. That's a bit scary to be honest. But when safe at home I just love it! So did your painting turn out pretty again? ;)

Lol, I hope it will turn out pretty! I've got maybe another couple of hours of work on it, so as long as I don't mess it up, it should be good!

good luck ^___^ I bet it will be amazing ;)
I am about to start a new painting too in a minute. I am giving my computer the task to scan for viruses, and meanwhile I am going to set up the canvas. It will be a painting about the myth of Pandora. Do you know that story? It's a story that always intrigued me. I hope it will turn out pretty. It will be mostly in greenish colors I think. Anyway, have fun painting ;)

I love all of the old myths!

Oww that's so cool. I didn't know, lol. Yeah myths have something mysterious I guess. It's lovely to paint them. Though I don't know a lot of them. It's a nice painting by the way. But I can see that you improved your painting skills a lot after school time!! ^____^ I think it's cool that you can see someone 'grow' just by looking at your work, lol.

Your Fairy Book

Hi Jasmine! I just remembered this morning that your book is suppose to be out in late spring. Have you set a date yet for its release? Just wondering so I can put it on my birthday list for June!

Re: Your Fairy Book

It will probably be more Summerish than Springy, hehe - we ended up adding a couple of painting tutorials in the back after all, so we had to change the layout. It'll be neater this way though - I know a lot of people will appreciate the step-by-step instructional photos, etc.

Re: Thunderstorms Yuck Monsoon

That sounds like a good painting, actually! I've been caught in the desert in storms before - it's scary! Once we were hiking up in Canyonlands in Utah and there were flashfloods - I thought we'd never make it out alive!
