Art, art and art.... [Sep. 4th, 2005|09:37 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
'Morning!

I'm working on my new Halloween painting, it is going to be SO COOL. Really! I can't wait to show it off, hopefully it'll be all finished by tonight! You can watch me while I paint HERE!

::SHAMELESS PLUG::
In unrelated art news, my friend Lesley (nymphie) is an artist as well - her medium is photography and she creates absolutely beautiful works. Funnily enough, the last model she used happens to have been none other than my own husband, Matty! How cool is that? She did a series of him with butterflies, and she is even selling prints of them through DeviantArt - go check them out - they are really lovely, and you KNOW you want to see what kaokame looks like with his shirt off ;) ;)

Re: Awwwwwww....!

Hehe, well some might even say he should have more than a few GREY hairs.... ;)

He's a hair-chameleon!

Of course, you kind of are too, now that I think about it!

Awh, thanks for the plug, Jasmine! I really appreciate it! And thank you to everyone that had nice things to say about the shots. I am working on another series of photos with Matt where he looks colorful and very tribal. Can't wait to get those done as well.

Good luck on your pumpkin piece, Jasmine! I can't wait to see it and I can't wait for Halloween! It's my favorite holiday and I suspect yours as well :). Am I right?

Anytime =) Ooh! Tribal is good!

I really do love Halloween - I especially love all the cool decorations, makeup and costumes that flood the regularly "normal" stores each season.

Is it just me, or does Matt bear at least passing resemblance to Ron in the upcoming Harry Potter film? Compare the first photo you linked with this one... it's the hair, it's gotta be the hair. ;)

Ebay User using your art hon..

Dear Jasmine:

I do not know if you gave this person to use your art as part of their layouts showing/selling their wares, but I wanted to let you know.

The name is ultra_violetfern and one of the last items was 5606637804 for a Super Dollfie costume.

Hugs!

Hehe, not sure why *I'm* saying thanks, since it's Lesley's photography and Matt's modeling, but I feel thankful all the same, lol.
