New Painting! [Aug. 7th, 2005|09:08 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |calmcalm]

I finished a new painting today - click below to see - it's very pretty!:

"Pet Storm Dragon"



Isn't it lovely? =)

There was a HUGE thunderstorm today while I was painting (that's why I added in the lightning, hehe!). Afterwards there was an enormous double rainbow that covered the whole sky - it was amazing! And then a bunch of little frogs started crawling around on our house, it was a beautiful day =)

We get them every afternoon pretty much (all summer!). I really like them, and they keep things from getting too hot, which is nice.

Wow - the lightning did it for me, I think, and the colors, too. That is perhaps my most favorite of any of your paintings. Once I am able to purchase items for the art section of my store, that will be the first one I choose. :)

It turned out very spiffy. I watched you paint for a little while on your webcam today (when you were doing the clouds.) It was the first time I actually ever watched a webcam. Facinating, it is!

Aw! Poor kitties! Mine don't seem to notice thunderstorms. They like the frogs that come out on the windows though, they spend all day batting at them through the glass, lol.

Wow, really really lovely!! I always like these ligting paintings of yours, haha. They have such a cool ambiance.
Funny huh when frogs come out of their hidden places after rain? We don't have a lot of frogs this year, but nowadays we got loads of toads coming out after a rainstorm. They are catching the flies who are sitting on the ground because of the rain :D It's great to see how fast the toads/frogs catch them with their tongue O.O

We get lots of frogs & toads too. I've had as many as 30-40 frogs on the back wall of our house! We also have lots of lizards - usually about a dozen on our back porch at any given time. My cats love it - they sit and watch them through the windows, lol.

wow that's a lot of frogs!! On your wall? So they sit on your house? Funny. What kind of frog is it then? We have less frogs this year because my dad started to clean the ponds in our garden at the wrong time. I told him to wait because of the frogs, but it wasn't possible at that moment. He was late with doing it, so the frogs decided to lay their eggs elsewhere, snif.
We have a lot of waterlizards though, they are very pretty and very tiny too ^^ Hehe, I can see your cats sitting there veeeery concentrated watching the lizards at your place, lol. Like cats can be veeeeery concentrated about certain things, they are funny creatures.

Wow! Those colours are amazing! I hope I get that job tomorrow (I have an interview) so I can buy a big print! She is so pretty, and I love that dragon hehe.

Sounds like a wonderful day, there's something about rainbows, especially double ones, that is so magical!

Thank you Neva! We had kind of the greenish colour during a storm the other day - it was beautiful, but kind of creepy. Back in Kansas City it would have meant that there was a tornado on the way......
