Thank you Colleen! I went a little nuts on the hair (I've been getting really into crazy-haired paintings lately, lol), but I'm really happy with how she turned out =)

Totally! Real mandrake roots are even supposed to come in "male" and "female" varieties (I'll leave that up to your imagination, lol).

Thank you Dawn!

It's funny - I get a lot of emails asking why I don't paint more short-haired girls. Actually a lot of my paintings actually start off with the intention of having short hair, but I get caught up in the hair-painting (I love that part) and it gets too crazy, lol.

P.S. Whenever I think of mandrake roots I think of the book Howl's Moving Castle. Good times.

Mandrake has always interested me. The shape can be cute and sometimes even creepy.
Also the scene about Mandrake roots in Harry Potter is pretty funny. I dont think you have seen it yet, have you? :-) But they have faces and screaaam!

They are weird plants, that's for sure!

Oh yes!!! I've actually seen the movies, I'm just putting off the books until they've all been written, hehe. I'm strange.

hi

hi i love this painting it is great.i was just wondering wether Mardi Gras Masquerade is in your new book ?=)

Re: hi

Thank you very much!

Actually no, Mardi Gras Masquerade is not in my new book - "Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith" only focuses on my fairy (ie, winged, lol) paintings, so a lot of my non-fairy work is not in the book. However I hope to do more books throughout my career and have maintained high-resolution files of Mardi Gras Masquerade specifically for that purpose!
