Fairy Group Portrait! [Sep. 27th, 2005|09:21 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I can't believe I finished it today! Woohoo! It turned out lovely too - and believe it or not, the colours are even brighter and prettier in "real life".

This was so much fun to paint!

Click below to see what I'm talking about......

"Fairy Group Portrait"



I included some closeup images to show off all the faeries =)

I'm off to colour my hair (gotta touch up those annoying blonde roots, they are starting to look really tacky, lol).

And then to have dinner! I've fallen in a bad habit of not eating all day while I paint and then eating one huge meal right before bed, lol, probably not the best way to do it.

Oh yes - I got something exciting in the mail today, I'll have to share it with you guys tomorrow. ;)

G'night all!

Keep some granola or trail mix in a airtight jar next to your desk!! Then you can munch all day!!!

I Keep a little thing of Almonds next to mine, just in case, because I have donethat too!

And since I work out for about 2 hours in the morning--it's not a good thing to let my blood sugar get that low..:P

I've done stuff like that a few times, but I'm so paranoid about having absolutely any kind of oil or residue on my fingers when I work - a BIG part of my paintings, believe it or not, are finger painted!

I work out as soon as I wakeup (7:45am, each day everyday) - I do Taebo and lift weights. I have a sensitive stomach and I just can't eat anything in the mornings for some reason.

I try to grab fruit while I'm answering emails though, I think that helps keep my blood sugar up!

Thank you very much!

Oh, it was, hehe! I made Quorn (a vegetarian "meat" substitute) curry from scratch, with tomatoes, onions, apples and raisins. I wish I had some more right now, lol.

Thank you!

Yep, naturally I'm almost as blonde as you! Here's a picture of me in high school: http://www.strangeling.com/jasmineblonde.jpg

When I was about 20 or so I started colouring it black, I like it better this way. (My dad still grumbles about it though, lol).

This painting is wonderful! I love how there are faries squeezed in everywhere hehe!

My dark brown roots annoy me when they start to show through (I dye my hair black) so I can only imagine your annoyance lol!

Oooo and I can't wait to hear about the item in the mail!

Thank you Sorrel!

Yeah, hehe - it looks pretty bad when the roots are light like this. From a distance it looks like I have a bald patch going down the middle of my head. I fixed it last night though, so it looks much better!

Thank you Dawn! Every so often I like doing a group portrait - in the past they've been mostly monochromatic (like my Green Goddess or my old Earth Faeries, but this time I thought I'd shoot some colour in there, lol.
