New Painting, new prints, new stuff! [Sep. 20th, 2005|10:03 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Sorry I've been so quiet lately! I've been phenomenally busy. Mostly on commissions, that type of stuff. You actually get to see one of my commissions (she's available as prints now, for the first time) tonight!

First of all though, I have a gorgeous new ORIGINAL painting - the colours in this one are amazing....click below to see her....

"Butterfly Princess"



Isn't she lovely?

And then I have some new #01 lt. ed. hand-embellished canvas prints....click on the titles to see:

"Sea Star" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

And then the custom painting I was talking about (since the original of course already has a home, this is the next best thing to having the original painting...)
"Hindu Fairy" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

And then they are both available as open edition SALE prints this week:

"Hindu Fairy" 8x10 Open Edition SALE $10 Print (she was a little painting, so she's only available in the 8x10 size).

and "Sea Star" 8x10 Open Edition SALE $10 Print & "Sea Star" 12x16 Open Edition SALE $20 Print

And finally, a couple of mini paintings - odds are they have probably sold by the time I post this (sorry folks, I go as fast as I can, lol):

"Big Eyed and Blue" & "A Little Hopeful"

Wheeee! That's a lot of new art! >^__^< I'll probably be doing some more commission work over the next week or so, but I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze in some more original paintings too, at least some minis.... ;)

I hope all of you in the Hurricane's path are faring well! We just got rain, not bad at all, considering we really needed some rain around here.

I need to go catch up with some LiveJournal and emails (best I can at least, I'm already feeling worn out today - too much work I think). I hope everybody is well.

Thank you also to those of you who supported my New Orleans Charity auctions! We raised a couple hundred dollars - how cool is that?

Her dress rocks my socks! I love pink a whole gob of lots. :) Her wings are purdy, too.

wow...love the vibrant colors! I keep looking at it and wondering how it would look if those were glow in the dark/black lightpaints, with the flourescent glow it already imparts.

Oh, that would be awesome - I'd love to see it as a blacklight poster - I had so much stuff like that when I was growing up, that would be a lot of fun.

Ow that is really cool. I have one statue of Ganesh, the elephant god, and I have a book with some hindu art, a little bag with a print of Ganesh on it and a tin to put pencils in with a print of a goddess who is accompanied by a lion. I can't remember her name. I am gathering bits and pieces haha. It's very beautiful and cheerful art :)

Is it my imagination or are your recent fairies looking more likelate teens or early 20s vs children? Beautiful transition! I saw her on Ebay last night and thought about how beautiful she as well as the mandrake piece!
