New Paintings, prints & a new LiveJournal Community! [May. 27th, 2005|10:15 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hey everybody!

First off, a LiveJournal user (lovepurplexo) has created a fan community here at LiveJournal for people who enjoy my artwork! (I'm so flattered! A community about my art, hehe!). Just a place to chat and stuff about my art, that type of thing. I thought some of you might be interested in joining up there - feel free to post or comment there whenever you like and to introduce yourselves, etc. - I'm sure that I will pop my head in there from time to time as well =) The community is here: jasmineb_g I'm just tickled that there's a community about me, hehe!

*********
NEW ART
*********

All righty! First and foremost, I've finally finished up the lovely painting of the silvery haired runecaster..... click below to see her.....

"Casting the Runes"



I'm so happy with how she turned out - I love the glowing circles around her!!

And then I have a couple of MINI PAINTINGS! It's a Friday night (very slow on eBay typically) so who knows - you might be able to grab one (but as usual, I apologize if they have already sold!)......click the titles to see......

"Pile of Runestones"

& "A Skeletal Swashbuckler"

And then I have finished up a couple of #01 edition hand-painted canvas prints - you can see them here.....

"Gathering My Forces" Lt.Ed. Canvas Print #01 & "Bringer of Lightning" Lt.Ed. Canvas Print #01

And THEN I have some great new SALE prints - the 8"x10" sizes are just $10 (usually $13.99) and the big 12"x16" prints are just $20 (normally $29.99). To see ALL of my sale stuff, click HERE, or to see each one individually, click below:

"Bringer of Lightning" 8x10 & "Bringer of Lightning" 12x16

"Gathering My Forces" 8x10 & "Gathering My Forces" 12x16

"Eyes in the Underbrush" 8x10 & "Eyes in the Underbrush" 12x16

Whew! I am beat! I might try to tackle some emails yet, but soon I will have food and rest and wine, hehe! G'night all!

Darn it Jasmine!!!!

Your paintings just get better and better, that is why it is so hard to decide if I had the money I would buy prints of them all but I don't Casting the Runes is awesome the color the eyes, so please don't be mad at me but I am changing snowspell to this print. Plus I like playing Runes they are cool. And I swear this is final..Plus I will send you a note with the package. Goodnight Sharon it is getting late here.

I know i don't know you and I'm being nosy...but i think your art is real cute and noticing that your "casting the runes" piece is selling for quite a bit on ebay...do ou do this for a living or just a side thing?...you must do pretty good for yourself...
anyways bye for now...i must go to work.

Hi there!

Oh my yes, definitely a full time job - I even have my husband working for me (he handles shipping, packing, wholesale, etc.). You can see more all about it up at my website - http://www.strangeling.com

I started when I was about 18, and it took about 4 years before it was really a "full time" job, but now my website, licensed merchandise, books (and eBay!) turned my art into a real career =)

That sounds awesomely cool..I needa check out more of your stuff...eventually. I'm terribly lazy...as you can see...took me ages to reply.
Since you're pretty talented..were you always able to draw and simply became better and more refined at it over the years..or was it something you had to really try at?... I've always had a passion for drawing...but I suck at it...yet it's like the only creative thing that i find myself interested in wanting to do...raargh!

I've always been pretty good at drawing & painting - I didn't really start taking it "seriously" until I was about 14, and didn't start doing it professionally until I was 18. I've gotten a lot better over the years since then - I think just doing it everday is such good practice, it's really helped me refine my skills.

You're very welcome. ^^

By the way, I took some pics of your work that's now hanging on the wall of my bedroom, hehe. I am adjusting them at the moment. Making them a bit smaller and brighter for you. I hope you like them. I will email them later. Do you mind if they are about this size?? >> about 800x500 pix, 72 dpi. Because I figured you might like to resize them yourself for your website (because of the quality and loading time etc.)

Anyway, um bye bye, hehe ;)

I love the new larger painting! Looks like there's a bit of Stonehenge behind her, I love that place!

Lol why are you surprised that there's a community for your art?! You deserve one with all your hard work :)

Have a great weekend!

Thank you very much Sorrel! This one was a pleasure to paint! (Maybe it was a little tricksy trying to make it look "glowing", hehe - but hey - I like a challenge!).

Jasmine,
I just viewed your runes painting, and it is enchanting! The glowing circles are a unique touch, and you captured the runic symbols wonderfully. I also love the stonehenge in the background. Here's a great site for "armchair traveling", that I think you'd enjoy (I do!): http://www.mythicalireland.com/ Lots of photo references to ancient Irish sites.

Have a super day!

An idea....a request

I was enjoying your work, WONDERFUL! And checking out your merchandise and i wondered if you ever thought about offering some of your work in cross stitch patterns. I would LOVE to be able to sew some of them and display them in my home. Since Fantasy art and the fantasical world are my favorite things and cross stitching is a big hobby of mine, I can't think of anything that would be more beautiful.
Thanks for allowing me to offer a suggestion.
