Painting! [Jun. 10th, 2005|02:54 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm still a little blah, but feeling much better - thank you all for the "get well" sentiments! =)

Amber's off at another job interview, Chris is here painting, and Matt is working on orders, and it's time for me to paint! I've been catching up on paperwork all day, so I'm definitely ready to hit the more artistic side of this business, hehe.

You can peek in on me HERE as usual =)

I desperately need to buy more supplies (canvas AND paints AND brushes) - I'll probably go do that tomorrow. In the meantime, I have a surplus of orange, so I'm going to try to paint....a......um......tiger? Sure!

Every time I try to watch you paint, it says that it doesn't work and I should download Yahoo IM. I already have that. So if I add you on my list, will I then be able to see you?
I am so not a web cam person. lol

Normally it will broadcast in the regular internet browser window (as long as you are using Internet Explorer, or a comparable PC browser).

If you'd like to go through Yahoo though it should also work - just put "jasminetoad" on your Yahoo IM friends-list and the webcam link should be in the friends-list window thingy! I don't use IM to chat though - it's actually on a different computer I just use to broadcast with, hehe.

I'm not big on orange really either - I think that's probably why I have so much left over orange paint, hehe - I hardly ever use it!

PUMPKINS!!!!!! and.....CITRUS FRUITS!!!! Oh I know!!! YOu could make an Orange BLossom Sprite!!!

I Havent touched my acrylics in so long it seem sto be virtually impossible for me to be successful painting with them! I Go through WAAAaaaay too many because I have to keep leaving them to go handle tiny emergency's every 5 minutes....Watercolors are so great, I dont have to care if the dry out whilst I bandage a booboo.

I Go through so few brushes now too!! LOL...(I can never seem to throw away the old ones either, I am such a pack rat!!)

Oh, I am totally busting out the pumpkins when it gets autumn-y out - I've got a million Halloween ideas up my sleeve!

I just use acrylics in tiny amounts at a time too - they do dry quickly!

Please change

Jasmine, please change Dark pegasus to the print you are working on now with the tiger. I know that I must be a pain to you but this will be my last order for awhile and I want to be happy. Sharon...

Re: Please change

Hi Sharon!

All righty! I won't be able to send your order out in tomorrow's shipment then, hehe - I probably won't be finished with this painting and have prints yet in time =)

I'll get all of the prints (including the other two) out in Monday/Tuesday's shipment then!

Goodness!!!!! I have fallen in love with your Tiger!!!!!!!!! He's wonderful Jasmine!!!

K.C. would like to know if maybe one day you might paint a Cheetah? LOL That's her favorite animal (Dolphins come in at second on her list)!!! :)

Thank you Colleen!!!

Ha - that's the same thing my brother-in-law Chris said (he's partial to Cheetahs too!). I might end up turning it into a "big cats" series, with panthers, lions & cheetahs coming soon, lol. This tiger was fun to paint!

Thank you very much! He was kind of difficult (they have such detailed patterns on their fur!) but a lot of fun!
